You will answer many of those questions by reading at http://www.chromium.org/ The Chrome netbook boots all the way into the browser in 8 seconds. It resumes in less than 1 second. I doubt any Linux-based system will boot in tens of milliseconds. The fastest I've seen is around 1 second for a highly stripped system and around 4-5 seconds for a more capable system.

I've seen a lot of interest in using Android for systems with touch screen displays etc. This is not so much Google actively trying to get into these markets as integrators wanting to leverage Android for their systems.

Rick, can you look for signs of Google getting into the Embedded market with Android please? Lots of questions about this at ESC last week.

A slimmed down Linux can easily run on 4GB of HD capacity. Embedded Linux can easily run on system with 8MB NOR Flash and 32MB SDRAM. For general purpose embedded OS, engineers are looking at 512M or 1G Flash and 256MB or 512MB RAM. The success of Chrome OS is not only just a matter of footprint but also its capability of task managements, supporting of wide variety of processors. For mobile devices, boot-time is no doubt important. Excellent Touchscreen sensitivity is also a major factor that most consumers are expecting. The availability of various application and the desktop integration may likely be something that consumers are looking for in the near future if they are not now.

How does Chrome footprint (size) compare to that of Windows 7 and Linux? Is it small and efficient so that small Solid State HDD of 64GB or 128GB is good? Can it run efficiently on 2GB or 3GB RAM? Can it boot in few tens of millisecond? Can I use it for other soft processors being employed in FPGA?

This year I am going to buy an Android Tablet and a ChromeOS Desktop. I already have an Android Phone and a Windows 7, Core i7 desktop. I want to know what to buy. I want a small, fast ChromeOS desktop that can attach a 24" monitor and a full size keyboard and mouse. I want a 10" Honeycomb tablet.

Google Android has very good response as open OS. This can have very good market for Industrial Controls. Will Google OS have RTOS version for real time control?
