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.

It is mostly what I expected. Moblin + Chrome

So no new windowing system. Plain old X11 is the windowing system (pimpled with OpenGL, Clutter etc.)

Things I like: Firmware, Security model, Open Drivers (I really hope they put pressure on the hardware vendors, that would give them A LOT of creds with the FOSS crowd.)

But I think they have to provide Native Client apps really fast .. people want native speed.

And btw. Litl is dead. ChromeOS seems to do the same (but more thoroughly executed) and will be "Less than free"(like Android)
