Submission + - Google Introduces the Google Chrome OS (blogspot.com)

nothing2seehere writes: Google has announced the the Google Chrome Operating System. From the press release: "Google Chrome OS is an open source, lightweight operating system that will initially be targeted at netbooks. Later this year we will open-source its code, and netbooks running Google Chrome OS will be available for consumers in the second half of 2010. Because we're already talking to partners about the project, and we'll soon be working with the open source community, we wanted to share our vision now so everyone understands what we are trying to achieve."

We know it well enough, since USSR participated in the Pacific Theatre

Declaring war on Japan in August 1945? The USSR "participated" by showing up for the yearbook photo. Typical Stalinist land grab. And quite frankly, it's hard to celebrate the Soviet contribution to the European front when Russia was originally so happy to indulge and assist Hitler. You let a wild dog off the chain, you deserve to get bitten.

I would be comforted to hear reasoned arguments that the situation currently bears no resemblance to the past.

Clever. So unless I conclusively show that the current era has absolutely no similarities to your vaguely-defined "past," I'm wrong. That's a lot easier for you than having to support your use of the term "fascism"... but then, you've already admitted that you're using it imprecisely, to say the least.

Comment Thanks a lot, Obamabots. (Score 4, Insightful) 904

At this point, the people who railed at me for supporting Nader, for daring to call Obama an opportunist tool of the status quo, can now officially kiss my ass. Those who simply couldn't be bothered to check his Senate voting record but who insisted on wearing that Maoist "Hope" portrait at all times, I say to you today: I told you so.

And as for the EFF, please use well the money I just sent you, and keep up the good fight.
