    This OS will have the same privacy issues that chrome has, right?

    This has so much potential, id love to install this along side windows, just for those moments when you run back to the computer when you have forgotten details or you just need to quickly check something!

    Pretty good summary I think. I remember bit-tech criticizing something along these lines as well. Was a real question btw - an OS like this would be awesome.

    It'll have all the same privaciy concerns as any cloud based system, as soon as you let the data leave your "sight" its a privacy concern. Whether those concerns out way the benefits is entirely up to you.

    Personally i love google docs, google notebook and gmail the convenience of being stored centrally out weighs any profiling google care to do on me. I'm dull.

    I can see what you mean, but my Windows Vista boots (to usable desktop) in about 40 seconds anyway.
