Google From NYTimes: "In a post on its company blog, Google said the operating system would initially be aimed at netbooks, the compact, low-cost computers that have turned the PC world on its head. It said the open-source software, called Chrome OS, would be available in the second half of next year. Read more for a quick observation on the announcement.

Agree.. I see nothing new here. But lets wait... I dont like google (anymore) but lets face it: its google. Its a big big company with a lot of money. They made a nice work out of android, so lets wait before we say it sucks... lets wait for more informations, alpha/beta releases, ...

I dont like putting my data on a remote server (third party), but I also miss it sometimes... thats why I keep my personal server online all the time. But we cant expect everyone to do the same...

I dont like cloud computing, but I will check out this project once its available.

One big problem, in my opinion, is the fact that the OS itselft is open-source, but everything else runs on servers! (all the user-land softwares). And these aplications (gmail, greader, etc, etc) are NOT open-source... so android and this google OS are not 100% open source after all...
