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?

"pretty much turn it into a traditional desktop operating system."

[citation needed] If it doesn't have local storage and a media player, it's not a traditional desktop system. Hey Google, my harddrive has much faster transfer times that my internet connection. While everyone at Mountain View has a FiOS link, what they don't get is that most of us outside the USA and Japan are on ADSL, which means slow upload speeds. And mobile internet here has 500MB data caps (best case). I don't want to wait for hours for my camera videos to upload to youtube, when I can just transfer them to my HDD, or blow my whole data plan just to empty my camera.
