This might require some specific features.

Earlier some news pieces suggested that Google is expected to launch beta version of its long awaited Operating System (Chrome) sometime in early fall.
There is a lot of speculation about the features and bugs that will come in the new operating system. Providing driver support for large array of hardware would be one of the biggest challenge faced by developers at Google. Although It has dedicated a huge team of developers for development of hardware drivers, it is almost impossible to include all the hardware available out there. especially the legacy devices.
There are rumors that Google would expect the hardware manufacturers to provide drivers for their own hardware. If these rumors are true then Launch of Google Chrome OS would be a sure Flop. Manufacturers have no incentive to invest into driver development before widespread availability and acceptance of the new operating system
On Tuesday evening Google has announced the forthcoming release of the Google Chrome operating System. It is a new open-source operating system which is primarily designed for netbooks but it is also for desktop computers. Yet this is the most direct attack made by Google on Microsoft.

In 2007, Asus also started selling the popular ASUS Eee PC and Dell and Hewlett-Packard Netbook products were also introduced in the market.
