    Google Chrome OS Released



    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0QRO3gKj3qw"]YouTube- What is Google Chrome OS?[/ame]

    The very first release of Chrome OS, source code only. It is not designed to be installed on existing netbooks but rather to be integrated tightly with the hardware, an SSD will be mandatory.

    The Chrome OS effectively turns a netbook into a thin client. All applications will be web apps, all data will be stored in the cloud and the operating system will be booted from Flash - no hard disks will be supported.

    "We want Chrome OS to be blazingly fast," said Sundar Pichai, vice president of product management at Google. "We want it to be like a TV - turn it on and you're in your web application."

    Google demonstrated the OS booting on an Eee PC in around seven seconds. "We're working very, very, very hard to make this time shorter," Pichai said.

    We want it to be like a TV - turn it on and you're in your web application

    "Every application is a web app - there are no conventional desktop programs," Pichai added. "It's very simple to use, there's nothing to maintain. It should just work."

    I have hosted the files for you

    VMware - http://www.filehosting.org/file/deta...-gdgt.vmdk.zip

    Note: Removed Virtual Box image as it is broken and the vmdk opens in virtualbox anyway

    Thanks for linking to the images. Using VirtualBox, I just get a black screen. Is there any special settings the VM needs for it to work?

    I have the same problem

    I'm told it needs an internet connection on boot, so bridged mode is probably best and give it as much RAM / CPU as you can.
