"Chrome OS is a reinvention of what an operating system does,
and uses the Chrome browser's interface as the central part of its
environment. It replaces many functions that were previously
associated with file systems and local storage with cloud-based

the browser to the cloud, with some Linux-based underpinnings, that
raises questions about what an operating system really is."
