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.

How about nice 3d GUIs. Things you can't do using a web browser like animation, video editing. Try doing this using Javascript! Maybe we will see Open GL in the browser, who knows!
It takes much more time than that to create an OS. An OS takes around 10 years to mature.
The OS you're talking about is too simplistic. And by the way 2010 is just 5 years away.
