Notice: This post is more than a year old. It may be outdated.

Confirming the long standing (general) release date, Google has announced that Chrome OS will come this fall. For those of you unfamiliar with Chrome OS, it’s a new operating system designed for lightweight devices like netbooks, with an emphasis on cloud computing. It’s being built with the help of Canonical, as part of a larger effort to bring Linux to the general computing public.

If you’re curious about what’s to come, check out the Chromium Projects page to see some of the UI elements to come in Chrome OS, and anyone with some developer fingers can dig straight into the code.
