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.

Local storage means nothing. If you get your device stolen, you are screwed. If it burns, you are screwed. With cloud storage and caching, you don't have to worry about backups, synchronization or anything at all. What's upsetting people here is the possibility of lock-in (and most of them are already locked-in by Microsoft, Apple or ideology).
