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's a question of functionality, not fear

I live near a large city and yet twice today I didn't have internet access for my laptop.

At this point the iphone is far more useful to me as a mini computer since I can play games on it when not connected.

Sometimes you want to go to a cafe and just use your computer quickly without messing with their network.

I really think it is too early for a web-only OS. It's too niche.
