Google is set to debut an operating system based on Chrome. (via <a href="http://www.nytimes.com/2009/07/08/technology/companies/08operate.html">New York Times</a>). Ishush <a href="http://ishush.blogspot.com/2009/07/google-os-based-on-chrome.html">has a brief analysis</a> that suggests this is good for the 'biodiversity' of the web climate, citing Jaron Lanier's criticism that "software makes us stupid..." but maybe an OS built by a company whose name has been made on "organizing the world's information" will be a natural fit for libraries?
