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.

Who cares about boot times

when everyone uses sleep/resume.

But more importantly I could care less about instant boot if it means booting into a desktop that requires internet access.

ChromeOS has to be one of the most overhyped operating systems of all time. The new graphics stack turned out to be a rumor.

It's a Linux distro that locks you into the browser. Amazing!
