Does this look like just a browser? Look again, it's actually the Chrome OS interface, which just happens to be the Chrome Web browser. If you can use a browser, this is one version of Linux you can use.
You don't have to have a browser window open in Chrome OS though. To open a window from here you can either use a keyboard shortcut or click one of the icons on the lower left.
The right-most button displays your Chrome OS applications. These, as you'd expect, are the same Web applications you'd use in your Chrome Web browser.
