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.

*Finally*, some damn innovation in the user space.

Ahem, sorry... Client/Server computing is old. It is a return to the Mainframe model. Cloud Computing is a centrally controlled behemoth of computing power and the end user gets a dumb terminal (Chrome OS device).

I see no innovation.It's technology spanning from the 60's to the 90's, with merely a fresh lick of paint. We even lose the control again we gained with fat client desktop computing.
