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.

These look like some fairly realistic screenshots of alpha version. Obviously they could be 100% fake. Anyway, cannot wait to see what it REALLY looks like.

I hope those screenshots are fake, elese it uses backslahes for file locations. I don't like that because I'm very dualistic ;)
