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.

remote desktop... not new

While Google may have more power and space to serve, this is not new, http://www.workspot.com/ has been doing that for some time using VNC and Linux servers. I had an account there some time ago, back when it was still free.
Of course it would be funny to see Google tackle this at a much wider scale, but I'd say it would lack integration with their other services...
A real GoogleOS would need query support, to handle searching google itself (and your gmail account) mounted as different volumes as you would on local files, and as I already do in BeOS, er, Zeta:
