Google just hosted an event giving insight into its much hyped Google Chrome OS, an overview of the technology and launch plans for its launch next year. It has been speculated that the internet giant would release its Chrome OS Code as open-source code and this in fact seems to be the case. The source code for Google Chrome OS is available for download now and is ready to be explored. A Twitter update from Google employee Matt Cutts detailed where you can download the source code.
