This looks really cool, but my issue is that it only applies to a very niche market - netbooking.

See, I do a lot of heavy statistical programing - Stata, for example. First of all, a Chrome OS would unlikely support a RAM-hog such as Stata. However, if it did, I wouldn't be too comfortable doing all my work on a cloud, especially when I'm working with very sensitive data sets. Nor am I too happy about simply keeping the data on an SD card or flash drive, where it could more easily fall out and be lost.

Unless I never want to do anything other than blogging, email, youtube, and LOLcats, I don't think Chrome OS makes a whole lot of sense for the entire market. As Walt Mosspuppet said: "Saying nobody needs more than webapps is like saying nobody needs a fridge because we can all drive down to TGI-goddamn-Friday's for chicken wings."
