Stung by a recent leak, Google will now host a special event tomorrow (Thursday) night at which they will reveal more details about their mysterious Chrome OS:

Join us for an evening at Google featuring presentations by Paul Rademacher on Google Maps and Ben Goodger on Chrome OS. Presentations will be followed by a short Q&A. Once the formalities have finished there will be further opportunity to meet and mingle with other attendees as well as Googlers from Chrome/ChromeOS, Maps, GMail and Search. Oh, and of course there will be plenty of food and beverages for everyone. We hope to see you there!

Note that the person doing the Chrome OS presentation is Ben Goodger, formerly of Netscape and Mozilla. You know, maybe Microsoft's angst about Netscape wasn't so misplaced after all. :)
