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 still can't get into netbooks and they have gone and gone three steps lower. I just cannot imagine ever wanting to use this. Maybe I am just too paranoid to have anything store online.

At least with a netbook, you can dump pictures on it when you are out shooting pictures. Or have a bunch of music when you are in a net deadzone. Hell, it'll be a paperweight in rural America.
