Google The LA Times is speculating the arrival of a Google PC running an OS also made by Google. "Sources say Google has been in negotiations with Wal-Mart, among other retailers, to sell a Google PC. The machine would run an operating system created by Google, not Microsoft's Windows, which is one reason it would be so cheap - perhaps as little as a couple of hundred dollars." They also say that Larry Page, Google's co-founder and president of products, will give a keynote speech at CES coming Friday, announcing all this.

If this was to be made for google specific hardware, there are plenty of other capable technologies out there, and some upcoming ones.

I for one would prefer to see different technology embraced.

However, I also see this as no more than a rumour.
