Martin Bligh, Software Engineer of Google Chrome OS, explains the concept of the operating system’s fast boot capability in this video. Chrome OS just seems to leave out all unnecessary steps in order to start a browser.
This is what is said in the video:
- The user should get to the web as quickly as possible.
- Unnecessary steps during boot time are skipped.
- There’s no hardware initialization before the kernel is loaded and started.
- There obviously won’t be Chrome OS netbooks with mechanical hard drives. Everything is saved on solid state disks (SSDs).
- At the end there’s a demo of a hilariously fast boot up. Check it out and leave comments!
