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.

Does this mean someone can hack your computer even when it's not on? Kinda like Sara Palin losing her email acct. So if a hacker came up with a 0day or just started bruting Gmai.. I mean Google OS, he could potentially own everyone, regardless of your Firewall, security software etc? Also as far as security goes, why is your data any safer in the cloud? I'm assuming if I break your silverlight (shutter) session I can still get to your data (just on the server now, @ http://fjkfsdjksa instead of C:\my do~) (what this won't run silverlight? but I need to...)
