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 hoped that they do something new. But thats something i can not use. In my country(germany) you don't have fulltime web access. Like it was a hour ago, when the net went down.
What can I do with the OS when there is no internet?

And it does not look so new. It is a normal linux kernel with an chrome running.(chrome for linux is not released yet and the daily builds are not fully working)

I have data on my computer that is not for everyone( most of it is source code). How is it possible to combine Chrome OS and that?

Another thing for me is that I use a lot software paralell with the webbrowser and the web versions of those apps are not the bests.

So no Chrome OS for me, but I think I will play with it in a vm when it is ready.

Then it is not a good option for you.
