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.

For me, it was _exactly_ what I expected and imagined it would be. Down to the small details.

*Finally*, some damn innovation in the user space.

Ditch the multiple splash screens, the multi-stage logins, the incompetent BIOS manufacturers (Google have supplied a custom firmware)

Version numbers are gone. Security is re engineered. Safe, silent updates and no more irrelevant nagging.

This is a bold, unflinching statement of the future, and a breath of fresh air. Microsoft and the OEMs could never have done this in a million years.
