Google Chrome OS

In early July, Google acknowledged that they are working at an operating system. A system that, like most everything that falls within the Google boundaries, is linked to the internet. Today, the people at Google have officially presented the Google Chrome OS. No, not ready, still in testing. Here is a small description of the OS. Source:

The second interesting thing I found, is a small explanation, why Google Chrome OS will be so fast in booting up.

You want my honest opinion? We are moving in this direction, yes, of a Cloud operating system, but, we are not moving fast enough. It will be a long time until the end-user will accept that all his data is stored online, and until there will be enough online applications so we could use a Cloud OS. Basically if you have a netbook, that could be permanently connected to the internet, and you only use it, let's say, to watch videos, or use social networks, or even manage documents, it's okay, but if you want to use, maybe Photoshop, or Pinnacle (two random examples), you will have to move your work to a desktop that runs Windows/Linux/Mac OS.
And let's not forget about the future Microsoft Windows Azure. And so a new war begins.
