The reports were originally for a higher education audience but now has a huge following. They are the result of the rounds of discussions and voting by the advisory board members (academics). The final report will be officially released on January 20.

Google Chrome OS on the Way

This blog posting on Extreme Tech talks about the release to developers of the Chrome OS.

So there's still time for things to change. We're currently working on downloading and compiling the source code to see what it's really all about?we'll report back as soon as we can."
