Well, I've been using different builds of open source "Chromium" for a little over a year now on my 15" Acer laptop. (which works well since its optical drive died years ago and I never bothered to replace it)

Booting off of a flash drive it works really well, it boots in 15-30 seconds and if you already use a number of google services, it's a pretty slick way to get on line in a hurry without having to wait for a full resident OS to load, but it's still a lot more capable than IOS is, plus, you know, having a physical keyboard to work with.

I like it, and I think  if they handle the publicity right, it would easily knock off some of the tablet thunder.
