Google If you ever needed evidence that no, people don't want a browser as an operating system, it's this: Google has updated Chrome OS to pretty much turn it into a traditional desktop operating system. This does raise the question - does anybody actually use Chrome OS?

I ordered a Chromebook - largely to watch Netflix on it and dual boot to Ubuntu Linux. But then I found out that if you unlock the bootloader for dual-booting, Netflix stops functioning under Chrome OS. I quickly canceled my order.

This has shown me the future. If you turn off the new generation of signed bootloaders to dual-boot to an alternative OS, I expect your Windows installation will be crippled and all DRM will cease to function.
