Chrome OS set to arrive earlier than expected
Reuters is reporting that Pichai says Chrome OS will arrive earlier than expected. Although it was originally slated for a December 2010 release, Pichai has indicated that Chrome OS will ship this fall.
As I mentioned yesterday, Chrome OS already looks like something Google could push out as a beta release. Whether that happens soon remains to be seen, but I wouldn't be at all surprised if the half way point (and Apple's WWDC) look like a good time for Google to strike.
