Google The news has been abuzz about Google's upcoming OS. Many people have been arguing reasons for and against the system, its viability in such a market, and, if the OS is successful, even the morality of the company who may be trusted with even more private information than it already has. Well, here's another reason for Chrome OS: it could bring more jobs in the area of Linux IT.

so much speculation on so little information. From what we know I think this is way too early to talk about IT job: we don't know what's the target market.

Competition is always a good thing though and I'd like to see more opening in IT ;)

Agreed. Chrome OS is currently nothing more than an announcement.

By this rate, Chrome OS will invent the warpdrive by next Tuesday.

Wait... you mean I shouldn't have just setup an entire LLC and website devoted to doing nothing more than consulting for ChromeOS-based IT contracts?

Chrome OS already invented the warp drive in the future and went back in time so that Gene Roddenberry could put it on Star Trek.
