Google In the announcement of the new Chromebook and Chromebox, I found this interesting tidbit: "And support for hardware-accelerated graphics, a built-from-scratch multi-touch trackpad and an open-source firmware stack provide a much faster and more responsive computing experience." It's the open source firmware stack that interests me. Does anybody know how extensive this is?

I think ChromeOS is a product before it's time.

WebApps are becoming more and more powerful and feature rich. However there are still many things developers are missing to target consumers.

With that said I think the whole concept still could potentially flop.

But with so much cash in the bank do you really think Google is too far ahead of the curve to eventually realize success in this venue?
