Chrome OS - Googles operating system
« on: June 18, 2011, 08:21:12 PM »
Hey guys. Google has just released their new ChromeBook to the world which is basically just a netbook with no operating system.. just web browser. So instead of booting up an actual OS it boots up the Google Chrome Browser. Watch the video below:

I downloaded a user hacked/edited version of the Chrome OS called Chromium Flow and multi-boot installed it next to my Ubuntu 11.04 OS and I have to say.. it is a decent OS. It basically gives me the option to just browser the web and not have to load into linux just to browse. I can literally turn my netbook on, wait a few seconds to choose to boot Chrome OS then a couple seconds later I am on the web. Fantastic!!

Just wanted  to share and hopefully hear from anyone else using the OS?

would be good but id still need to store my games somewhere and storage files like, docs, videos, composed music etc :s so i guess im stuck.

a good add tho i actually listen to it and it actually makes sense, rather then BLAH BLAH BLAH in ur face, using the overused subtle blue screen for attraction n all thos gay advertising tricks

That would be a slow download. But if you want it I'll put it on the UG website then give you a link.
