Strange as it may sound, it seems that the Longsoon netbook could very well be the first netbook on the market that will be powered by the long-awaited Google Chrome operating system. While Longsoon 2F processor was originally built to function with Linux-based software, this has opened up an avenue for Google Chrome OS to sneak in since it is built on top of a Linux platform, making it a somewhat logical choice. We do know that there are substantial orders for the Longsoon processor that will see action in mostly 7″ and 9″ netbooks, but how successful this endeavor will be remains to be seen.
