Google Okay, so it's not an actual release as Arrington predicted last week, but Google will indeed take the wraps off its Chrome OS tomorrow. The company will hold an event tomorrow at its company headquarters in Mountain View, California, where it will unveil its plans for the operating system. Update: An OSNews reader has uncovered possible evidence that Chrome OS uses X, Clutter, and Slim.

You are sooo right.

X may well be the main reason why this whole Linux-on-the-desktop thing has not happened after 20 years.

Those Unix based GUI projects that have made it anywhere happen to have skipped X Windows (e.g. Android, OS X).
