Google to pop Chrome OS cherry tomorrow?
Tangos with Microsoft rival in code showdown
Google plans to steal some attention away from Microsoft’s annual developer shindig by unveiling more details about its Chrome OS tomorrow.
Mountain View will be revealing how far down the line the company’s wonks have gotten with development of its operating system, which is currently expected to debut at some point in the second half of 2010.
It will also presumably dish out code to some hardware partners who build computers for the netbook market.
An invitation went out to some hacks* yesterday, which reportedly said Google would “show a few demos” of its forthcoming Chrome OS, which Google first announced in July this year.
There’ll also be a few short presentations from product management veep Sundar Pichai and Chrome OS engineering boss Matthew Papakipos.
Google’s decision to reveal more about the operating system this week comes as little surprise given that Microsoft will wrap up its Professional Developer’s Conference in Los Angeles on Thursday.
Meanwhile, an increasingly Google-apeing Redmond has been bigging up the significance of Azure, its own cloud computing effort. ®
