On Google Chrome OS


Link

Everything in the cloud? As long as I can save files on my Eee PC's SSD storage I will be very happy. Also:

1. Ability to read PDF without the internet
2. Ability to print
3. Ability to watch downloaded movies
4. Ability to listen to MP3s stored locally
5. Ability to connect to camera, external storage via USB
6. Ability to touch up photos
7. Option for offline webmail

Based on this video and the direction Google is going with their Chrome OS, I believe some additional work needs to be done for number 1, 2, 5 and 6. And we haven't talked about webcam yet. Yes, it may bloat the OS a little. But certainly with that it will definitely make a compelling reason for me to switch to Chrome OS on my Eee PC when the OS is release in 2010(?).
