GNU, GPL, Open Source From Free Software Magazine: "Google promises a much needed shift in the way small computers work. Problems like software updates, backups, installation, maintenance, viruses, have plagued the world for too long: a shift is way overdue. To me, however, the change about to happen shows us what many people have refused to believe for a long time: KDE and GNOME shot each other dead."

ChromeOS will only take off if the hardware support is good out of the box, this is why Linux is failing, not the 'war' between two(?) GUIs. Even a WebOS needs good hardware support for sound, video, 3D or it wil fail against the competion.

My conclusion, Gnome, KDE, LXDE, XFC, GNUSTEP, etc will all win too if google can make the hardware support better.
