Google buys Neverware and Cloudready, will Chrome OS arrive on all PCs?
Google has announced the acquisition of Neverware, the company responsible for CloudRead y, an operating system aimed primarily at schools and businesses that allows you to transform older PCs and Macs into devices similar to Chromebooks. Neverware's CloudReady operating system is based on Chromium and a free “Home” version is also offered.

It was Neverware itself who announced the operation last Monday:

We are pleased to share some very interesting news: Neverware and CloudReady are now officially part of Google and the Chrome OS team! We look forward to sharing more details with all of our CloudReady customers, users and fans in the coming weeks and months, but for now, check out the following to find answers to some of your possible questions.

Google has further declared to 9to5google colleagues:

We can confirm that the Neverware team is joining the Google Chrome OS team. As we continue to support customers as they transition to the cloud, Neverware has offered an important solution, CloudReady, which enables customers to have the management, speed and productivity of a Chrome device. Following our partnership over the past few years, we look forward to working more closely with the team to support more customers in their transition to Chrome OS rollout.

Finally, Neverware has communicated to its existing customers that “there will be no changes” to the free Home Edition or other support policies at this time. In the near future, it will be possible to upgrade from CloudReady to Chrome OS quite painlessly.

Recently, Google services have been inaccessible for almost an hour. It seems that the problem was related to the Identity Management System (IdM). As you can read on this Google Cloud page, the down hit all the services that need authentication and lasted about 45 minutes. The bug that caused the outages was identified in the automatic quota management system, which reduced the space available to the IdM, preventing it from functioning properly; the systems could not authenticate user requests, which received several errors in response.

Do you need a new laptop and use Google services a lot? You could buy an Acer Chromebook Spin 311, available on Amazon.
