"Sometime in 2010, Google will release Chrome OS, its take on a netbook operating system. It will be far more than just that though. It's an entirely new take on the desktop operating system. While a final version is still months away from release there's already enough of Chrome available that we can begin to see what it's going to look like.

"For starters, Chrome OS is Linux. To be exact, it owes a lot of its genes to Ubuntu. But, that's all under the surface. You won't need to know a shell command from the GNOME desktop to use it. As a matter of fact, you won't need to know anything about the traditional Linux desktops -- KDE or GNOME -- either. Chrome OS's interface is Google's Chrome browser. If you can use a Web browser, you'll be able to use Chrome OS."
