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.

Consoles are a good example of a computer that runs without an operating system. I think the latest generation have operating systems (I don't own one) but if you look at the older systems like PS2 and cartridge machines they had 2 parts, a BIOS and a game, there was no OS to speak of.
