A fan of startups, entrepreneurship, getting things done faster, penning the occasional blog post, taking photos, designing, listening to good music and making lurrrve.

Two videos posted on Google Chrome’s YouTube channel – then made private – confirm the long awaited arrival of Chrome OS and the Chrome Web Store.

The videos were first spotted by Google Operating System, an unofficial Google blog, and give introductory tours of both the OS and its new web store.

The official launch is expected to take place at 10.30PST and we’ll be live at Google’s HQ to cover it. We’ll also publish both videos here as soon as they become available. You can follow the event live yourself at  http://www.youtube.com/googlechrome.

Chrome OS is not expected to be available as a regular download to run and install. Instead, the operating system will only ship on specific hardware from Google’s manufacturing partners. The OS ties directly into Google Chrome Web Store, an web app store first demoed and announced at the Google I/O conference back in May.
