Windows vs. Chrome OS, so it begins, or at least itís about to. At the end of the past week, Google started sending out invitations to a Chrome team event on December 7th, 2010, in San Francisco.
The promise from the Mountain View-based search giant is that some exciting news about Chrome will be made public. No other details were offered, but the general consensus among various third-party sources seems to be that the event is related to Chrome OS.
Googleís open source Linux-based operating system has been cooking for some time now, and the company now seems closer than ever to place a foothold in Windows territory.
Speculation indicates that Google might ready a Beta preview of Chrome OS which would ship on a netbook offered to developers.
However, this is not the actual general availability deadline of Chrome OS, which was postponed to 2011, with Google refusing to detail the reasons of the delay. Chrome OS was initially planned for availability by the end of 2010.
