Google It's turning out to be a bit of a crazy week for cool new products, isn't it? We already got Ubuntu Touch Preview for phones and tablets, then we got the new PlayStation 4 yesterday, and today Google surprised us all by launching the Chromebook Pixel. Google's first laptop appears to be a stunning machine - just don't ask who the hell it's for.

ChromeOS is based on Gentoo Linux, and you can get a terminal emulator by hitting Ctrl-Alt-T. Hopefully they'll add a GUI way of accessing it soon, as a gentle introduction for all the nublets. I'm seriously contemplating getting a Chromebook and seeing how much work it takes to bootstrap pkgsrc on it, because it's already GNU/Linux, it just needs a package manager that stays out of /.
