Google Offers a Peek at the Chrome Operating System - NYTimes.com

A couple clarifications: it won’t be available “for about a year” and those “servers across the Internet” will be Google servers; imagine how that could expand what Google already knows about you and your digital activities/stuff

But with the Chrome operating system, Google is not trying to build a better version of Windows. Instead, it is aiming to shift users toward its vision of “cloud computing,” a model in which programs are not installed on a PC but rather are used over the Internet and accessed through a Web browser. In Google’s approach, a user’s data will also reside on servers across the Internet, rather than on their PC.
