That is the range of it. From a local OS, google blows away Windows and OS10, or chrome OS fails ....but it's up in the air.

This will be interesting to follow over time. I have grown up using computers in one way or another for over 33 years now and this cloud computer stuff just doesn't say secure to me. I have a netbook and use it basically like I would any laptop except now it has all my medical records/scans and pictures and I don't like the idea of using software over the net to look at my very personal records kinda makes it easier for people to get these files compared to when I look at my scans today I can do it without worry of it being accessed by a third party since I don't have to go online to show my doctor these files.

P.S. yes I carry all my medical records on a netbook it saves time and repeated tests don't have to be done as much. the cool part is the hospital gives me my records/scans/x-rays etc on CD free.

lol. They already have a blog dedicated to it!
ChromeOS-Blog
This site has downloads for the OS and tutorials for how to run it from a VMWare and off a USB Flash drive.
Another person builds (edits for fun, i guess) new versions of the OS, and has a sub-domain dedicated to it. He hasn't updated since April or so, so I don't know whats going on. lol
Here's the link: Builds by Hexxeh.
I actually ran it and the official Google OS off of an SD Card and a USB Drive. I also tried copying the Chrome OS partitions from a USB drive using Ubuntu, but after deleting Ubuntu partitions, GRUB2 for Ubuntu was deleted, so I can't boot Win7, making my HP Mini 110 useless...

well i didn't completely read the rest of the thread. if google wants web users an instant ON computer experience, they should revamped the BIOS. the BIOS, IMHO, still works in the same way it did eons ago! once they overhauled the BIOS, or whatever name it should be now, then we can talk about instant ON and google's goal for the webizen.

I really like Chrome, but don't care for most of Google's products. They all seem like fisher price toys, no joke. In fact, Google reminds me of a Taiwan manufacturer- cheap quality. If MS wants to really hold their ground in the browser war, they need to keep IE9 clean and simple. Firefox seems so bloated up where Chrome is more seamless. I really want to love IE9 and hoping MS does it right!
