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.

So sure, it is little more than moblin + chrome NOW, but as long as they avoid getting trapped by having to support native apps, they can work on shrinking their OS stack. I predict X will be the first thing to go...


Having Native Client does not imply that they would commit to native app support. It just means you can run native code in the browser sandbox, for performance. Binary browser plugins as such are not sandboxed right now.
