Google Even though everyone's talking about it, fact of the matter is that Google's Chrome OS is currently nothing more than an internet announcement, with a supposed release date of somewhere in 2010. Google chief executive Eric Schmidt has now stated that netbooks running Chrome OS could appear as early as this year. In addition, Schmidt also talked about his position at Apple's board of directors.

Quote from Wiki: Chrome OS (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Google_Chrome_OS)
Google has stated that the Google Chrome OS project will be open source[5] by the end of 2009. Although it is based on the Linux kernel, it will use "a new windowing system".[6]

I am really interested in seeing a new windowing system. To me X window is a heavy weight WM, is not a good one for lightweight OS as we expect from Google chrome OS.
