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 call BS on that and Citation needed.

Which machine starts karmic that fast from power on??


A quick google would have found you the citation
http://arstechnica.com/open-source/reviews/2009/09/ubuntu-910-alpha...

I don't think it's including BIOS time though




Most take longer for BIOS messages, Then those times are just to login/GDM. Gnome takes even longer to start. And then Firefox ,,,

So what they showed today (10 sec to a broswer window) is way better than Ubuntu/Mac or Windows.


Well a lot of phones boot faster and are more functional than ChromeOS
