    Anyone else applied to get a chrome os netbook

    Google is expected to send out 60,000 of its Chrome OS powered netbooks to members of its pilot program, an initiative that was unveiled at Google’s Chrome event yesterday.

    It takes about 5 mins to fill out the form and then sit back and wait for the post to arrive.
    I am sure I won't get one but maybe if you are more inventive with your "in not more than 140 characters tell us why you would be a good tester"
    Here is the link for the application Home - Chrome OS

    'So if you live in the United States, are at least 18 years old, and would like to be considered for our small Pilot program, please fill this out. It should take about 15 minutes'

    missed that bit. Strange because you can select uk when filling out address.
    Oh well worth a try.

    Just a standard drop down. Someone was too lazy to edit.

    I assume its open source? It will be on the Pirate Bay in no time at all. So i assume there wont be a problem from getting it from there...

    I thought it was freely available to play in a VM? I haven't got it yet but I think I read it on here - or has it changed massively since then?

    More than that - a free netbook without a capslock key!
