Anyone else feel that googles new Chrome OS is pretty much going to be very similar to Webos?

No it won't. For one, it's not designed for cellphones. Two, it's a completely different UI that's based on the Chrome browser.

The two are Linux based, but saying that they're similar because they're both Linux distributions is like saying WebOS and Ubuntu are very similar.

Conceptually it sounds like it's going to be very similar.

Webos won't be limited to cell phones for that long. Also, since both use their "browser" as the Gui of the OS, I think they will be very similar.

I don't think the implementation will be similar, but the general idea is very similar. Programming for both will be similar, given the differences in UI design.
