Google's Chrome OS

I say it's about time Google. I guess it took the rise of the netbook to finally make this happen. Web apps are and have been the future for how we interact with the world outside of the corporate cube.

It will be nice when that day comes that I don't have to endure a two minute boot of a PC just to get to google and check some stats.

I doubt though this will put Microsoft out of business. Competition will force them to adapt, like they always do when threatened. Look at the stagnation of IE 6 until Firefox threatened, then bam, IE7, IE 8 within what a year?

Maybe we'll finally get that lightweight Windows desktop OS they have been promising for like, ever. Competition is a good thing.
