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.

Software as a Service maybe?

Thin clients have been mentioned before in this discussion, but if we concentrate on the software rather than the hardware, in my opinion the model that springs to mind is SaaS.

Of course Google is not going to ask for money as such, and I expect the markup on the official netbooks for Chrome OS will be microscopic, but an ever increasing audience for targeted advertising is still worth a lot of money.

Anyway, I wrote a lot more about it here -- take a look if you wish:
