seems to me like it'll be another "Linux". Won't ever go mainstream, and there will only be a very small percentage of people who will actually use it.

Our society has already accustom to Windows and Mac os's, so i think google is wasting their time.

I think that people will use it, because google made it.

And if it's like other google products, then it'll be nice and easy to use.

And I will be one of those people

The only google product I don't use is chrome because I like FF better. I think their OS will just kick.

I'm looking forward to testing it out. I'm sure Microsoft could use some more competition, I just hope we the consumers don't end up paying for the ensuing battle.
