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.

Seems pretty much like a browser based Linux. A bit more extrem though than most recent approaches (cloud *only*), but generally pretts much like e.g. LimeOS http://usa.mtcera.com/os/index.html

Well, there is one big diffrence thoug: While most browser based OSes yet failed more or less I am bedding my right arm and my both balls off that this one will be rather successful, because it is driven by Google.
