Pics and Details of Google's Chrome OS Leaked? Nope!

An unnamed supplier for computer manufacturer Acer apparently got a sneak peek at the upcoming Google Chrome OS and posted some interesting information. Obviously, Google Chrome OS is still in the early stages of development, but this early report sounds promising. The report states, "This beta was extremely stripped down. However, it was amazingly fast. They did one reboot and it rebooted from Desktop to Desktop in about 25ish seconds." The early preview of Google Chrome OS also notes a clock and a search box on the "Chrome bar" along with large icons similar to the Mac OS X dock, and a Chrome logo button that mimics the Windows start menu. So, Google is "re-thinking what operating systems should be." Hhmm. (Sources: Chrome OS Leak, Electronista)

UPDATE (21:29, CDT): It turns out that this was a hoax. Lame!
