The Chrome OS is supposed to be an extra stable, extra fast way to get to the web. Apparently, Google believes that if getting to the internet was just a little bit easier, more people would do so.
But Ubuntu boots in less than half a minute for me, and I can't remember the last time an OS broke down enough that accessing the internet was difficult.
I guess Google just really wants that extra half minute of your time.

I have trouble remembering the last time I booted my laptop, period. I put it to sleep, and it takes at most 10 seconds to resume (usually when docked, since the video card's working harder). That's under Vista/7, but the days when Linux had a lot of trouble sleeping seem (anecdotally) to be behind us.
I'm increasingly convinced that they're just doing this because they can.
