Google Google has just unveiled its Chrome OS operating system during a press event at the company's headquarters, and it's pretty much exactly what we expected it to be: a streamlined Linux kernel booting straight into the Chrome web browser. The code is available starting today.

I think this is a wise strategic decision for Google

While this is definitely not for me, it would be a great OS for my parents and something I can give them with certainty that it will always work.

Looks and sounds interesting and I am sure Google will contribute some interesting changes upstream.
