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.

Storing everything on the Internet? I mean how can I trust Google, or anyone to keep my files safe. I know the web generation doesn't care about this, but I certainly do, and I least of all don't trust a corporation to keep my data private.

One thing that gets me is that most people have very slow upload, how could they benefit from something like this since it would take forever to upload anything. Its obvious what Google wants to do.. They want to charge you for storing all your crap on their servers either through ads or a monthly fee, either way it seems stupid to buy into a service that would be like that. The only way I would be willing to do this is if I could configure it to sync with my servers and not Googles.
