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.

I'm not sure why so many of the computer/OS experts are so excited about "cloud" computing. Aren't these the same folks that fuss about security? What is less secure that trusting someone else with your data?

Someone breaking into your computer and stealing your data is an embarrassment/setback to you and/or your company. Someone breaking into google datacenter is a cataclysmic disaster for a multibillion dollar company.

Guess which one gets secured better?
