Google Chrome, the operating system

It's official: Google Chrome, the operating system
Perhaps the single biggest threat to Microsoft as a viable software concern could be delivered by Google, if any part of yesterday's announcement becomes reality.

Interesting. Seems to be that google is diving into other areas again. Wonder how well this OS will be received when it comes out.

Eh... Its basically a custom Linux distribution which uses the Chrome browser for its interface. It might be worth trying out, but I'm not holding my breath that its going to make a dent in Windows monopoly (unfortunately).

It's definitely a move at the netbook market. What I"m really interested in seeing is if Google has plans to make a full desktop OS to go after MSFT.
