Surprise! Friday's report that the Chrome OS "launch" for this week was almost true: Google's OS will be shown in "complete overview" on Thursday. But what does that mean, exactly?

According to Techcrunch this isn't really a launch, but rathe a chance to give us a first look at the OS, and for Google to detail their actual launch plans (we've been sitting tight with the "late 2010" projection from the initial announcement):

The plan is to give some technical background information as well as show off some demos, we're told. More notably, they will be giving a "complete overview" of the new OS, which they say will launch next year.

Knowing what Chrome OS will look like is only half the fun anyway—three months after it was announced, we still don't really know what the hell it is, or how it's going to work. Soon! [Techcrunch]

I hope it's not be a pure cloud OS. As much as cloud computing looks like it's the future, the infrastructure is just not present for it to be useful to have as an OS yet. I'd hate to need to use my netbook someplace, pull it out, then be unable to because my applications are in the cloud and I can't find internet access. #chromeos
