This is interesting stuff.

I can't imagine google trying to effectively handle the millions of 
hardware combinations without heavily relying on code from various linux 
distributions. One has to wonder though, are they simply going to take a 
linux distribution and remove everything except their browser, or are 
they going to produce useful, original code that can be reintegrated 
into Ubuntu and the likes?

And then there is the issue of how open source fits in in a world where 
most of our applications are in the cloud.

Things are going to get interesting in the next 2 years.
