Google to Unveil Chrome OS Tomorrow?

TechCrunch reports that Google is planning a Chrome OS event for this coming Thursday. While the Google operating system won't be launching tomorrow, the company is said to be lifting the lid and providing a lot of details about launch, showing off some demos and discussing the technical background of it all.

Although Google is going to go into great detail about the Chrome OS, the actual launch won't happen until sometime next year. That said, if Google's willing to show demos and go into to great depth about the software, I'd bet the mortgage we won't be waiting until through Q2'10 for this one.

    If you expect it to run Windows Apps, then you're an idiot. Windows runs Windows apps. Google is not making their own version of Windows. Of course this will be another flavor of Linux. Not saying that's a bad thing, just pointing out the (not so) obvious. Think people!

    Unless it will run main stream Windows apps, it will most likely be another Linux or MacOS. Dare I say it... will it run Crysis? :)

    From what I've seen from Android this is going to be great. Google could well be the next Microsoft.

    I agree with Extreme, unless it works fine (no emulation needed) with windows apps or other programs I don't see this being anything other than another Linux based OS. Now "IF" it does work with all the games and programs on windows now then I just may be a nice alternative to windows.
