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.

Clutter does not replace gtk as a toolkit. Clutter offers a nice canvas-like scene graph but no traditional GUI widgets. So unless google implemented a whole new toolkit in top of clutter chances are they are using gtk with clutter.

I didn't see Gtk+ in the "Credits" link, that't where I came up with the conclusion.

IIUC Chromium doesn't really use Gtk "widgets" either in the rendering area (it's only used for the menus/decoration/dialogs), possibly Chromium is providing all the "widgets" for the OS.

There is however 'nbtk'(Netbook Toolkit) which is a toolkit on top of clutter (to be renamed to 'mx' iirc).
