Yesterday Google announced that they were in the process of developing a browser-focused open-source operating system. Today Google's posted up a Q and A on their blog site in order to answer the most common questions being asked about the Chrome OS. You can view the FAQ here. Make sure to check up frequently, because they'll be adding new questions on a fairly regular basis.

We've gotten several interesting pieces of info from Google so far. As expected, the Chrome OS is going to be totally free to use and distribute. It's also been confirmed again that the open-source OS will be available to other developers sometime later this year. All you developers will only have to wait a few more months before you get your chance to tinker with Google's new baby.

The coolest news on the site was the fact that Google is already working with several companies to design and produce devices that run on the Chrome OS.

“Among others, these companies include Acer, Adobe, ASUS, Freescale, Hewlett-Packard, Lenovo, Qualcomm, Texas Instruments, and Toshiba.”

If you'll notice, pretty much all of the biggest names in netbook manufacturing are on that list, which means we should be able to look forward to some sexy new devices built to run on Chrome coming out in the near future. I doubt we'll see any in 2009, but by early to mid 2010 I'd expect to start seeing releases trickle in.
