Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

That's not Chrome OS, stop getting excited over nothing!

A lot of people can't wait to see how Chrome OS will look like. I'm one of them, even though I haven't posted anything related to this so far, because it's all rumors or bu******t and I don't like posting such things.

For instance, the recent screenshots and .deb which people were saying it's Chrome OS is just Google Chrome for Chrome OS, just like there is a Google Chrome for Windows, Linux and Mac OSX:

This is just the *browser* component of Chrome OS, not the operating system itself. We are currently working on building Chrome the browser for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Chrome OS, and the source code of the browser for all four platforms is all public."

The above quote comes from Eitan Bencuya of Google Communications.

But finally, Google will let us know some things about Chrome OS.

Google is hosting an event in Mountain View today, where they are going to talk about Chrome OS. The Front End Engineering Open House will take place at 6PM PT, and will feature presentations and an hour of mingling with Google staffers (presumably including those working on Chrome OS).

A public version of Chrome OS is expected on 22 of October. Yeah, that's the day Windows 7 is also suppose to be released.
