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.

A browser on top of a nearly naked kernel on top of a minimal bios. All software and non-volatile storage being provided by servers. It's about what the rumors sounded like versus the wild claims that it would be the second coming of Linux backed by Google.

Now, let's hope a VMware appliance becomes available, an ISO or something cleaner than a source build and storage juggle to get it into a VM.
