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.

Anyone wanting to try out a more "traditional" OS with the browser as the main application should try out Browserlinux (http://www.browserlinux.com/) based on Puppy.

It's main apps are:

Firefox (with Flash and Java available)
Geany text editor
xterm
Utilities
