Chrome OS demo set on Thursday


An event hosted by Google will showcase the company’s development with the Chrome OS. It will take place on Thursday at Google’s headquarters.

First announced last July, the news created a buzz over the web as the search giant decided to venture into this new territory.

“Google Chrome OS is being created for people who spend most of their time on the Web, and is being designed to power computers ranging from small Netbooks to full-size desktop systems,” Sundar Pichai, vice president of product management, and Linus Upson, engineering director has both said in the company’s blog post confirming the OS’s existence.

According to an invitation sent to members of the press today, Google will “show a few demos” at the event. Pichai will also be giving a presentation, as well as Google Chrome OS’s engineering director Matthew Papakipos.
