Google Chrome - Not Just a Browser

Google announced this week that they will be taking on the giant that is Windows with the Google Chrome OS - a lightweight, open-source operating system aim at netbooks (at least initially). The Google Blog describes it thusly:

People want to get to their email instantly, without wasting time waiting for their computers to boot and browsers to start up. They want their computers to always run as fast as when they first bought them. They want their data to be accessible to them wherever they are and not have to worry about losing their computer or forgetting to back up files. Even more importantly, they don't want to spend hours configuring their computers to work with every new piece of hardware, or have to worry about constant software updates. And any time our users have a better computing experience, Google benefits as well by having happier users who are more likely to spend time on the Internet...

In other words, this isn't Windows. Do you think you would use the Google Chrome OS, or do you love Windows too much to switch?
