Google has arranged an event at its headquarters in California which could reveal more details about the operating system it hopes will challenge Microsoft's dominance.

According to reports, journalists will attend an event, at Google's headquarters in California, on Thursday 19 November. This comes days after TechCrunch reported that the Google chrome operating system would be available for download in a week.

The operating system, called Google Chrome OS, is an open source, lightweight operating system. Google Chrome OS will initially be aimed at netbook PCs.

Google plans to open-source the operating system later this year and expects netbooks running Google Chrome OS to be available in the second half of 2010.
