Chrome OS Overview Planned

Posted by Unknown | November 18, 2009 |


Announced on July 7, 2009, the Google Chrome OS is finally slated for preview on Thursday. According to a report by TechCrunch, the event is planned at Google headquarters in Mountain View, California. The plan is to give some technical background information as well as show off some demos.

Chrome OS - running on Open Source platform targets the perpetually connected, and is set to define the line between browser and future OS. It sent shivery down Microsoft Spine when the Search Magnate earlier declared it public.

Also expected at the event is the announcement of the actual launch date for the new Chrome OS.

However, tech gossips across the net hinted that the launch will be slated early next week, but the new report only points to technical preview, likely in the form of source code. Developers would soon be getting a chance to peek at the new platform and build applications for it.

Expectations are high on the part of analysts, but what it means for the average user? We will have to wait and see.
