Sep 2nd 2009 2:48AM I'm hoping that Chrome OS is basically no more than a permanently maximized version of the web browser, with a nice small notification tray replacing the current `minimize', `maximize', and `close' buttons. For those who don't much like a fully maximized operating system, take a look at Moblin: most elements of that are fully maximized and it works well, definitely considering it is designed primarily for netbooks (as Chrome OS seems to be). Gears already allows for relatively good offline capabilities, but hopefully it can be improved and more finely integrated into the system. So in the end what you have is a nice, simple, lightweight web-browser-based operating system. Those who want something more powerful should go with full Linux or Windows.
