Native Client = Google Operating System?

Native Client is an open-source project recently launched by Google. The goal of this is to create "a technology that aims to give Web developers access to the full power of the client's CPU while maintaining the browser neutrality, OS portability and safety that people expect from Web applications," (Brad Chen, Google's Native Client team). This is still at the research stage, but once fully developed it would be similar to Java, Silverlight, or Flash, but have that special Google touch. Dare I say "Google Operating System?"
