Internet search giant Google has lifted the lid on its operating system, known as Chrome OS.
The free and open source system is initially aimed at low-cost net books and does away with many of the features of a traditional program.
All applications are designed to run in a web browser and all the user’s data is stored on Google’s servers.
Engineers from the firm said the first computers running the system would be available before the end of 2010.
