Editorial Wishful thinking? Yes, but let's consider the possibilities. The last couple years have seen significant advances in hardware production and design. One of the more interesting (and potentially revolutionary) developments to take place this past year is the announcement of a new CPU, the STI (Sony, Toshiba, IBM) Cell processor.

Google has no secret plan

This article offers some really good reasons why a Google OS simply isn't going to happen: http://daltonlp.com/daltonlp.cgi?item_type=0&item_id=424

But, assuming that all of that was incorrect, I still see another flaw in your reasoning: I doubt Google would bother to base their work on Cell hardware. They're commodity x86 systems already work great, what reason would they have to dedicate so many man hours into porting their work to a different hardware architecture?
