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.

The software architecture is simple — Google Chrome running within a new windowing system on top of a Linux kernel.

Well, Google said it wouldn't use X. Did they change their minds? Why? They could have lifted the windowing system from Android and modified it for desktop use. If it is X I will be really disappointed. They got so many things right with Android, I was hoping they would do the same with Chrome.
I guess we'll learn more today.
