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.

This doesn't "prove" anything. Maybe some of the components are based off of one of these programs. Maybe it contains some of the code. Maybe it it used in a non-standard way.

I'm just saying, this isn't proof for me.

Well it may be fog of war ...

But if you combine these credits with google-chrome-unstable_4.0.222.6-r28902_i386.deb that was on Googles servers for a short time and had a clock/date, battery/network indicator in the title bar and touch pad & network config on a Chrome OS tab in the options the fog starts to go away IMO.
It seems likely now that Chrome OS is LFs Moblin stack + a pimped Linux Chrome.
It will be interesting to see how Google does window management etc. There does not seem to be a dock or a taskbar.

I thought about possible window management and an elegant solution is actually pretty simple. Tabs will be Chrome OS windows. That is simple but also very limiting, but I guess good enough for users.

In the long run I guess Navive Client/O3D apps will run in tabs and will be able to switch to full screen (the leaded .deb already hat a fullscreen mode)
