Google With all the recent hype surrounding Google's Chrome, it's refreshing to see someone taking a few steps back and looking at the bigger picture. Superlatives were abound about Chrome (I personally really like it), but some people really took it overboard - take TechCrunch for instance: "Chrome is nothing less than a full on desktop operating system that will compete head on with Windows." Seeing my nationality, I know a tulip mania when I see one. So does Ted Dziuba.

I completely agree that a web browser (i.e. google chorme) is NOT an operating system. But that doesn't mean an OS has to run on bare metal, it can be hosted in another one, have a look at Inferno by VitaNuova for a good example.
