Chrome OS code available today 11/19 (release next year?)

There is a Google Press conference today (Nov 19). brainstormtech.blogs.fortune.cnn.com­/2009­/11­/19­/go...

The press conference was for the releasing of the source code (Chromium OS) www.chromium.org­/chromium­-os, meaning the code is available for developers to download and contribute but google's Chrome OS won't release till next year.

Chrome/Chromium OS is for x86 and ARM. The OS aims to have data and apps in the cloud ("everything is a web application"). Its suppose to be secure (the "user never installs binary" Google does). The OS looks like an extension of the Chrome browser e.g. applications == tabs (see the demo in the press video).
