One word: Bah.

Chrome OS is pointless. An OS that utilizes web applications for it's apps? Didn't another OS vendor try that? Yeah, somebody did - it was Apple! Apple tried that trick on the iPhone and it was a flop. Sure, a couple sites made reasonable use of it, but nothing compares to a real true app. Apple learned that fact, and Google should too. In fact, stay out of the OS market completely. There are too many versions of Linux as it is, Google doesn't need to make life even more complicated.
