"As with the PC and Web waves, developers will first be intrigued by, then
attracted to, and, finally, compelled to leap into this next big wave-the
emergence of software that runs in your head, the first instance of which
can be visualized as a special-purpose OS for the human mind."
It's an OS in the sense that you need an OS to run a PC and with this you can run a PC without the need for Microsoft. It's plainly aimed at the average man in the street rather than the average developer so calm down, let Mr Average have his shiny new (and free) OS (however you might argue the point thats what most people will call it) and carry on as you are. If you are lucky it will force MS to review their prices and you might save a few quid on your new copy of Weven. (Actually Windows Seven if we're going to be pedantic about what we call things!)
I'm quite sure it will be good actually. I'm excited to see what Google can do with Linux to fix some of the glaring problems it has at the moment.
What I'm shocked about is the tech reporting community that don't seem to have noticed what's important here. Could 2010 be the year that Linux gets a big player behind it that's enough to push it into the mainstream. That really would be great.
The idea is that the browser becomes the platform for applications (instead of the OS). Only this means that the browser will, over time, grow into an OS by itself - with all the weight OS'es have now.
It will end up a pr0n OS for people who - as one spokesperson said - "spend a lot of time on the web". After all, if little timmy is ready, you can't wait for Windows to boot up.

Oddly enough, a few weeks ago, someone was asking several queries on the C# board with malicious intent. I was wondering if he's writing a "virus" in managed code. Imagine an error message that it might show: "Error: Badass.Exe needs the .NET framework 3.5 to be installed".
