Google Google has just unveiled its Chrome OS operating system during a press event at the company's headquarters, and it's pretty much exactly what we expected it to be: a streamlined Linux kernel booting straight into the Chrome web browser. The code is available starting today.

There is nothing wrong with making educated guesses on stuff like this Thom, but it is somewhat dishonest to guess wrong and than claim to have guessed correctly. Yesterday Kroc posted it would basically be a web browser and that developers would already be prepared for it. You replied:

It won't. It will be a lot more like a traditional operating system than people think.


That was yesterday. Today you post this:

So which is it?
