DOH! Thanks for that.

Google Chrome (Chromium) = Browser

Google Chrome OS (Goobuntu) = 'Linux'

- certainly answers one of my questions - Ubuntu based.

Interesting. Curious. Not sure if that's good or bad. i.e. vs Red Hat, 
competition, and all that. And interesting that it's Ubuntu and 'not' 
Debian.

Ubuntu / Shuttleworth got to Google / was successful faster than Red 
Hat was?
