Submission + - Google finally announces war with Google Chrome OS

thehunger writes: After years of speculation, Google finally announces a new Linux-based operating system that targets everything from Netbooks to full Desktop systems. If there ever was a declaration of war on Microsoft, this is it. And while time will tell if Google will succeed, their strategy seems remarkably simple. Capitalize on the fact that Windows is bloated, slow, cumbersome, vulnerable, and doesn't really do what most people spend most of their time on: the web. So yeah, release a light-weight and open source operating system that consists of the Linux kernel, a new light weight windowing system and tight integration with the web. (Sound familiar?). Google already has a few killer web apps, so if this new OS spreads then each new web application will chip away at Windows' dominance. Certainly this is an example of disruptive technology in the making?
