Is this new operating system the Microsoft Windows killer that some people think it is? Initial design reports suggest that Google is working under the assumption that eventually, everyone is going to want to do everything online and that every single computing task will be cloud based. Their new OS certainly makes this concept easier to achieve, but does not help to resolve the several large, outstanding concerns and challenges people have with the concept of cloud computing. See this article, Arguing about clouds, a brewing storm or a clear and sunny day?, to see some of the key battleground areas that will eventually find their way into the arguments about Google Chrome OS and Microsoft Windows. If nothing else, Google does present a hefty challenge to the Windows Cloud OS mentioned here.
