    HAHA. So true. Still its quite an interesting feature. Not quite as revolutionary as shuttleworth thinks though.

    Classic. Excellent use of sarcasm!

    They've added web shortcuts to their menu. Which isn't really new you can just create launchers with the "gnome-open http://www.google.com" command. It does have nicer icons I suppose. Social media widgets are hardly revolutionary either. The integration of last fm is cool though, But what happens if you use grooveshark, or youtube or some other media website...

    I wonder if they will intergrate office 365 and web apps, then this could be very useful

    It's not the revolution Mark Shuttleworth is trying to sell, true. On the other hand, with this you've got an honest-to-god OS, whereas with ChromeOS you've got some watered-down BS that isn't really an OS at all.
