Google: Taking over the world one app at a time

Google is everywhere. You search with them, you write with them, you send email with them, you make phone calls with them, you can look at satellite images of your house with them, you can even browse with them, among other things. But now, Google wants the last piece of computer real estate: Your operating system.

Google announced their Google Chrome OS today. It’s set to be a lightweight operating system for those who do most of their computer “in the cloud.” It is expected to ship with netbooks next year. And really, for a netbook, it sounds like the perfect operating system.

Fortunately it will be open source. As some of you probably know, I tend to be a bit leery about Google’s offerings (though I love Gmail). I’ll be waiting for the Steel or Tinfoil Hat version to come out before I use it.
