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.

s. It's about what the rumors sounded like versus the wild claims that it would be the second coming of Linux backed by Google.

To the extent that cloud-only OSes matter, this is clearly Linux's presence there... to the extent that cloud-only OSes matter.

It's just too bad that this couldn't have been microkernel-based. Then, instead of one beautiful Ivory Tower stretching up into the clouds, we could have had two beautiful Ivory Towers stretching up into the clouds. Twin Towers, one might say...
