RE: What Chrome OS has on Windows that Linux doesn’t

Stephen Shankland wrote an article entitled “What Chrome OS has on Windows that Linux doesn’t”, published today, July 9th at 4PM. I was expecting to hear some amazing new technologies being employed by Google’s first entry into the OS market.

However, the author makes absolutely NO case as to why Chrome has advantages over Windows, Linux, or Mac. “The Web is the OS” is not a differentiating advantage it is a limitation. Windows, Mac, Linux already support web applications. But guess what, on all of these platforms (Windows, Linux, Mac) you have something you don’t have on the web a rich client experience powered by native (albeit proprietary) APIs.

The idea of ChromeOS is just silly.
