Google "Today, we're happy to make available a developer preview of the Native Client SDK - an important first step in making Native Client more accessible as a tool for developing real web applications. When we released the research version of Native Client a year ago, we offered a snapshot of our source tree that developers could download and tinker with, but the download was big and cumbersome to use. The Native Client SDK preview, in contrast, includes just the basics you need to get started writing an app in minutes."

basically, if this catches on, it will almost completely remove the need for desktop OSs, given that software written for it will run natively in any browser, regardless of the platform and it will simply not exist apps that can't be ported. The next step is pnacl, which will make everything written for this portable to any processor or device..
