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.

I wonder what Google's solution will be for music libraries. Evidently, anyone with more than a middling music collection will need some local storage.

Oh, yeah. They were careful to point out that you could use it as a sort of oversized iPod.

Also, I assume there will be copies of needed documents, etc. kept in cache for when working offline.

Cached documents? For use by... offline web-apps? Nope. Your data lives at someone else's datacenter. And what good would having the data do you without the applications... which also live at someone else's datacenter?
