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.

They mention the 5s start as something exceptional, but really the OS is not usable after 5s you still need to connect to the network, on my home network that's often >3s and this is not even taking into account loading the webapp you want to use and suddenly the start-up time is really not that much better than a normal OS. Also Karmic brought a 5s boot time when using a SSD and that's a full OS, so the Chrome OS time is not impressive.
