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.

Remember how well Steve Jobs' telling developers to write their own web apps instead of native apps went over when the iPhone first came out? It's one of the main reasons the Jailbreak community came to life in the first place. The same thing will happen here. It's a matter of when, not if.


Google has been doing a lot to get Web Apps behaving like normal apps.

Look at what they did to GWT to get Wave nice and shiny.

Its still no replacement for native code though.
