      So I'll probably run Google Chrome OS in VirtualBox on Mac OS X.

      How much memory will be required? I wonder…
  • It should just work
  • run on both x86 as well as ARM
  • a new windowing system
  • software architecture is simple
  • out of your way
  • applications can be written using your favorite web technologies
  • these apps will run
  • on any standards-based browser
  • largest user base
  • designed to power computers ranging from small netbooks to full-size desktop systems
  • Google Chrome OS and Android overlap
  •  
    Simple architecture: * WebKit-based Google Chrome * a new windowing system * Linux kernel. Open source, large developer base, large user base. Smart!

    Applications that are designed for Google Chrome OS should run equally well in any standards based browser. If I do need to run Google Chrome OS on Mac OS X, I'll probably do so in VirtualBox.

    Thinking about laptops that are gathering dust … the OS will run on x86 or ARM. I wonder about other requirements: * memory * display resolution * etc..
  •  
    A new project, a natural extension of Google Chrome - the Google Chrome Operating System … to re-think what operating systems should be.

Mobile Opportunity: A quick history of software platforms: How we got here, and where ... - 0 views

  • where we're going
  • software with APIs that third party developers can write apps on top of
  • grow a tech business more quickly if you get third party developers

  • lessons about where the industry might go
  • Fair warning: this is a long post.
  • In 1969, the Justice Department, ADR, and several others filed antitrust suits
  • IBM agreed to stop bundling free software
  • disaggregation is a natural outcome
  • multiple companies can move faster
  • backlog of potential creativity
  • The OS is dissolving into a soup of resources distributed across both the network and the local device, with the application in the middle calling on both
  • what it lacks in beauty it more than makes up for in rate of change and versatility
  • hybrids of local and network resources
  • gradual evolution of a super-OS that includes both the network and the device
  • we don't have a name for this new thing
  • trouble talking about it
  • I'm calling it the "metaplatform"
  • Although the metaplatform isn't necessarily elegant
  • compatibility
  • technological advances always lead to value chain fragmentation
  • what happens if that company goes out of business or just decides to stop maintaining the product?
  • If you've incorporated external web services into your site, the site will break if any of those services stops working
  • We don't have any systematic ways to deal with problems like these
  • a business opportunity for the next crop of software entrepreneurs
  • What the metaplatform means
  • Much of the discussion in this post is pretty theoretical
  • practical implications
  • iPhone today gives (in my opinion) the best overall mobile browsing and app discovery experience
  • APIs that will enable other developers to extend
  • implementation is often off-target
  • trying to make their APIs into the business equivalent of an operating system
  • private ecosystem
  • opening the application outward
  • mixed and matched with other functionality in the metaplatform
  • export data isn’t enough... what springs to mind is open source
  • Lots to think about
  • Clayton Christensen
  • The most effective mobile application are
  • a framework to predict where most profits will be made
  • HTML5
  • changes that are brewing in the mobile industry
