Google TechCrunch's Michael Arrington is claiming Google's Chrome OS will debut next week - but his story does have an odd ring to it. He goes on and on about how driver support will be shoddy, but that makes no sense - isn't Chome OS supposed to be built on Linux? The only way I can see initial driver support to be shoddy is when Chrome OS has its own, custom graphical layer, instead of using X. However, were that to be the case, I'm sure Google would at least support some NVIDIA, ATI, and Intel chipsets. In any case, it's a rumour - do with it as you please.

Yes Android is based on linux, but its also pretty different. In anycase, it doesn't really matter to me what a single individual says about the product before its widely released. Its interesting, but its not going to drastically influence me to try it or not. If that were the case, i'd be running hurd ;)
