The Chrome before the Gazelle[edit]

Gazelle was announced before Google Chrome OS was.

  • Yes, but not before Chrome (browser) was released, which very clearly foreshadowed a minimalist, browser-based OS. There probably should be a line about Gazelle as a response to Chrome itself. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.7.67.220 (talk) 04:10, 9 July 2009 (UTC)

Misleading[edit]

Both still very much use and rely on an operating system. Chrome OS is just a marketing term and is not meant to imply that the web browser is becoming, replacing or being integrated with the kernel directly. In fact, as far as currently (unofficial) reports indicate "Chrome OS" will in fact be an integrated GUI/Browser running on the Linux kernel.

In this way, Gazelle is no different. Gazelle will still be a user application and not assume system level responsibilities. It's merely the artchitectural design which will *resemble* that of traditional operating systems where different web applications can be better sandboxed and secured. This is actually extremely similar to the approach that Google Chrome has adopted, where browser tab as well as each external plugin executes as an isolated process. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.104.146.212 (talk) 18:01, 18 November 2009 (UTC)

Vapourware?[edit]

Is it absolutely certain that it's vapourware? as Cortana's development also started in 2009. --Lumia930uploader (talk) 21:09, 14 April 2015 (UTC)
