Google Google held a Chrome event today, and the rumours had suggested we might see the launch of Chrome OS today. This turned out to be nonsense, and in all honesty, the entire event didn't really deliver much in the form of new information. The Chrome Web Store has been opened, and the first Chrome OS netbooks will arrive in the middle of 2011.

I downloaded the beta and have it installed on a VM in Parallels. I like the concept, but the implementation leaves me cold. Perhaps there's an audience for this thing, but it seems to me that if you're going to spring for a low end laptop, you might as well get something that offers a bit more flexibility.

I installed it, poked around for a few hours, and then went back to using my regular laptop. Whatever audience this thing might have, I'm pretty sure it doesn't include me.
