A coworker liked this idea I had, so figured I'd reshare. So I've been using the #Chromebook for a bit now, and it's moved toward looking like an operating system a lot more over the last few months. So I'm thinking, why doesn't Google go one step further and have #ChromeOS replace(the application) as its browsing alternative. No longer would Chrome be a browser or an application within Windows, etc, but it could be a straight up VM.

- I've had a Chromium VM running on my local stack for sometime now. Possibly a year or more... almost positive more than a year. If you're interested in setting it up let me know and I'll burn you an image. (or google chrome vm :-P )May 3, 2012
- Yeah I've had a VM of it for a while. This is thinking more for the consumer market though. Consider a Google OS application, and all it does is open fullscreen in Windows or OS X, eliminating your operating system altogether. That way you can also carry your desktop with you, use different profiles, and function entirely within Google's ecosystem.May 3, 2012
