good god people .....it hasnt even been made yet, so many people are going to be so upset when it comes out and totally sucks ass.....lol ...wait and see , the hype is going to kill this thing dead on the first run out of the starting block... I cant believe the number of sites talking about an OS that hasnt even been made yet for the public to get a glimpse of. The friggin browser sucks....the only decent things out of google is search and email. This OS is supposed to rival Microsoft OS ??? and champion Linux???.....its not going to play nice with Linux and wont dent Microsoft at all. Every give their heads a shake....

Interesting read what MS said about Linux not making a dent. "Microsoft has acknowledged for the first time, that linux is a direct threat to the Windows client, naming Red Hat and Canonical as competitors to it's Windows client business in it's annual report to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission."

The thing is, there are just as many people in the open source community talking about how Chrome OS will suck as there are people praising it. Your right 'bill gates', we can't really make an intelligent comment on it until we see it.
