While we heard a few days ago that Google was preparing to release its netbook-friendly Chrome OS this week, it now seems that a special Chrome event set to take place tomorrow will instead show off what the OS can do in preparation for a 2010 launch.

TechCrunch got wind of the planned event, set to take place at Google's Californian headquarters tomorrow morning, and has been told the plan is to out more technical details and show off some demos of the OS in action.

It's also been said that Google will be giving a "complete overview" of Chrome OS, suggesting it could be on track for an early 2010 launch.

Google's VP of product management Sundar Pichai, and the Engineering Director for Google Chrome OS Matthew Papakipos are said to be speaking at the event, so hopefully they'll be able to shed more light on the OS, which has so far been kept tightly under wraps.

Do you think Google's Chrome OS can really bother the big boys like Microsoft? We're not so sure, but let us know your thoughts on the forthcoming OS below.
