Chrome OS Codenames use Star Fox names
Engadget is reporting (via GoNintendo) that recent checkins of Google's Chrome OS have used Fox, Falco, Slippy, Peppy, Mario, Sonic, etc as placeholders for upcoming devices that will boot directly to Chrome OS. Glad we have some fellow Star Fox fans among the engineers at Google.
I don’t quite under stand what I am looking at.
Just what is it?
It’s code for the browser Chrome, running as Chrome OS, an operating system that is just a web browser and nothing else (since, for the most part, you can do everything you could want to do with web technologies if you have a fast enough connection). The code is written in the language Python. This is a settings file. It doesn’t DO anything like most code does, but instead defines data that can be used by other parts of the program.
