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 was believing in the revolution. Although this looks very interesting, I'm afraid it's too much of a simplistic approach though. Now I don't know if it's going to really catch. One thing for sure: Finally someone beat the hell out of Microsoft and GNOME treating users like complete dumbies...
I am sure it's going to catch among 90% of users, because you know... the majority wants it easier and easier.

Another vote for the saying "Power Users shed a tear".

What? This thing is targeted at the Facebook-only crowd who'll then settle on Google Docs because it's all that is available. Who's treating whom like complete dumbies? Who are the real dummies?

Microsoft and Gnome users are the progeny of Einstein, by comparison. Chromium OS is AOL all over again.
