Windows 7: Google Chrome OS

I guess it's the future. So i'm going to try it for sure. And if understood it well, and thats why i was confused by the Gos (read somewhere google works with them for the cloud bit), it's basically a cloud computing system.

For me i see the enormous advantages in the upcoming age of superfast internet. Your pc is just a blackbox which just works, and applications you can either rent per usagetime unit or per a form of monthly subscription fee.

Often it happened i needed an app for just to do something once or twice. Buying it is overkill, so you're forced to the darkside or not do what you need to do.

Yes, i look forward to this.

Don't want to be banned for a flippant remark so...

I'm sure this has great future.
Take my wife
My computer ...... So is completely lost with all the icons, taskbars, options, multiple screens, security warnings, ways of screwing things up she mostly BSOD's the poor thing in under a minute.

And i made it simple, just 1 icon to click, it opens a VBOX session in her mother tongue with a totally bare Vista with just IE and Livemail.

I rented one of those tivo boxes for her. The box is really perfect for the computer challenged.
You cant do nothing but record a movie, watch a movie or a VOD. The screen is basic, simple. It does what it needs to do.

She got it going from day one.

So that's how i hope to see Chrome OS.

A simple box, that you can on to fly change from a simple internetbox to a hardcore software design box to a administrative system to a complex computer nerd box.

It will be based entirely on Linux, so this means typing commands, installing every driver for your hardware through commands, etc. It will be nothing like a Windows-like OS, just another Linux distribution. Plus, Google Chrome is 'calling home' like every 5 minutes or something, I wouldn't trust Google at all to be the main OS on my computer, they will probably register every single move you make and use it for their database. I'll pass on this Linux distribution.

Android will be better i think as that will be a real OS and not Cloud based ( Cloud = No interenet No OS.)
Just a note to anybody to avoid confusion -
The new Google OS, not to be confused with gOS. gOS not made by Google, and not the same thing. gOS just uses google apps, and the "g" is what is confusing, which stands for "good", not google.
