Google to shed light on actual Chrome OS - not the browser - on Friday 10/16

I'm as intrigued as anybody to find out what Chrome OS is actually going to look like. And despite what TechCrunch has been publishing this week, the truth is that we still don't know. No, that "early build" MG Siegler was raving about isn't an OS. It's just the browser. Over at ComputerWorld, Google's Eitan Bencuya offered some much-needed clarification: "This is just the *browser* component ...

TechCrunch's MG Siegler got all excited over the weekend about the appearance of a Chrome OS build folder on Google's Chromium.org server.

More Chrome OS clues - and it's sure sounding like a bootable browser

After a second (or is it third?) round of possible Chrome OS images captured by the ever-popular A. Nonymous Tipster on his trusty-but-low-res digital camera, speculation around Google's ethereal OS is bound to keep heating up. I located a reference to Chrome OS in the Chromium source code's switches file yesterday, and today I was intrigued to find not just a few lines in a file but an entir...
