Google Chrome

So The Googles have just come out and said they're releasing an operating system dubbed Google Chrome OS. Cool. This part is my favourite:

The software architecture is simple — Google Chrome running within a new windowing system on top of a Linux kernel.

I use FreeBSD as well as Mac OS X on the desktop and while it does have some nice features, X11 is kinda kludgey. I'll be really interested to see what Google does as a graphical front-end instead.

The other question on my mind is: will Google Chrome OS run Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird? :)
