Whatever facelift they're going to plaster, this crap OS is just only a toy. I won't even call this an Operating System, a browser only for grade schoolers.

I don't understand why you think that. This OS carries the unique ability to utilize the Cloud to its fullest, though I'm not sure of the specifics myself. A while longer in development and it'll turn out to be another market broken into by Google.
All we need is a Google console, eh?

I'd say this OS has the unique ability to tie you to a company's revenue stream, nothing more. "Cloud computing" was EXPRESSLY invented to keep people on the corporate teat, after all.

Until they increase it's offline abilities it's still severely hindered.
I have a CR-48 and for a free computer it's very cool, but completely useless without net service.

If android is anything to go by I think chrome os should succeed. BTW how is this any different from the diskless stations. In today's times internet connectivity is almost as good as network connectivity. All they need to do is have something like possibility to mini boot from an sd card !

I am looking forward to getting my hands on the latest iteration of Asus tablet or Google Nexus. I just might abandon my desktop systems altogether!. As such we already have 7" tablets with addon keyboard, 720p display, 12mbps 1080p capable mini hdmi and USB ports for under US $ 170/=
