Chrome OS and WinRT

I still don't get WinRT or the new windows applications. If I really wanted to go back 20 years where I could run one application at a time I would use an iPad instead. This whole paradigm shift brings me to Chrome OS which works fine on ARM architecture and since most of the applications are just web applications I really don't see any difference from the WinRT applications.

Maybe in a year or two I might have to eat my own words but at this point of time I don't see WinRT going anywhere. If WinRT does work out it will surely push Chrome OS adoption as well. Its cheaper and lighter than WinRT.
