Well, it's happened, so now we have two shitty OS: chrome on top of
mac os x. Naturally interoperability between different programs from
the web and anything else (even other programs in the web) is
non-existent. Ken and rob are currently working at google trying to
make sure it stays so - the idea being that if the stupid people that
control the real OS can't be made to learn at least they'll make
themselves an abstract environment that can hide the past and all the
pain, to then work on interesting, more challenging ideas on the
higher level (in the web) without distractions.
Please correct me if I'm wrong, my googleinos :)
