See, that wasn't too torturous a wait, was it? Those of us who have been salivating with excitement over the imminent launch of Google Chrome OS now have, at most, one week to wait. TechCrunch reported today that a "reliable source" has informed them that the new open source OS will launch within one week. This is fantastic news for everyone who has a browsing machine that they want to work, fast and regardless of the circumstances.

TechCrunch notes that driver support is likely to measure in at anywhere from 'lousy' to 'middling' at launch. Google is either setting hordes of engineers on making drivers, or leaving it up to manufacturers themselves. Whatever the truth is, they are unlikely to have many up and ready by the time this launches.

Google has been working with several players, Asus, Acer, Adobe, HP, and Qualcomm among them, to get ready for this release. Expect several netbook lines to be fully supported immediately, with more support coming steadily after release.
