Retail computers with Linux operating systems were a thing of the past. But thanks to Chromebooks, they are making a comeback. Google announced that its latest series of Chromebooks, Samsung Series 5 Chromebook and Series 3 Chromebox will be available in the retail market shortly. You might want to consider taking Linux training courses as Linux based PCs might become the in-thing in the near future
You might also be wondering how these PCs might fare in today’s market considering Microsoft Windows has an iron grip on the consumer PC OS market. But does it? When Microsoft released windows Vista, users were stumped by its complicated settings and other details that Microsoft had added to make it more attractive. In the end, the aversion to Vista grew so much that people started buying home edition of the XP operating system. Microsoft also realized their folly and sold XP at below MRP prices. The latest from the company, Windows 8 has not been well received by its users either.
But the big question is will Linux based systems survive in today’s world. Surprisingly, stats say that they might. Google is a more dominant force in today’s market than it was 5 years ago. It has earned a reputation not only for its Android operating system, but also for the host of other services.
Also, you can now use the Chrome OS without connecting to the internet . Changes had been made in Google mail long ago, which allowed using it in offline mode also. Google also made some adjustments which allowed users to use Google Docs in offline mode. Google has announced that in the future, it will make some changes to allow all its other services also to be used offline. This will provide the much needed push for the Chrome OS, and you don’t have to be surprised if it takes the world by storm.
