"Google Chrome OS is an open source, lightweight operating system that will initially be targeted at netbooks."
There's more from John O'Conner's Blog:
"Google Chrome OS will be a slightly more beefy Android OS ..."

I wonder what will happen to MotoDev Studio for UIQ, an integrated development environment based on the Eclipse IDE, and Sony Ecrisson's Symbian OS Docs & Tools. They could be phased out soon and extinct anytime. Will Sony Ericsson & Motorola embrace Windows Mobile OS fully since the only Symbian OS is now totally owns by another competitor (a.k.a.
