The Google Chrome OS and a boy’s dreams

 

Circa 2002. My windows Xp system crashed taking along with it all my tons of precious data. After a tiring process of reinstallation that involved yelling, frustration and tension I wondered how the OS’es of the future would be. Would they be as ubiquitous as the internet. Like I would just login to my computer and could download the OS right from the internet provided the the dial up connection was fast enough (broadband cable was yet to make an appearance on the horizon hehe)   I bounced the idea off a few friends and they just laughed it away saying who would want to do that. Evidently ‘the cloud’ was light years away.

Google I/O May 10, 2011.

I stand vindicated.
