Chromium OS User Experience

Lots of information here about what Chrome OS is going to look like and how it’s going to work. In a nut, it’s an OS that boots in under 10 seconds and gives you a WebKit browser. It does more than a browser, like by recognizing when USB mass storage devices (cameras, Android phones, etc.) are plugged in, but you don’t do things like deal with a local file system or install applications. You turn it on, you use the Web.

(Just like with Chrome the browser, with Chrome OS, “Chromium” designates the open source branch.)
