Chromium OS - Anyone?
I just downloaded the image from net and created a bootable USB stick. Restart the computer with this and booom, you are straight on net
It uses the login screen as an login for the net. yes, you need to enter your gmail id & password, and you are there. On the internet. Cool.
I like this. Need to explore more. Anyone trying this?
Intersting thing is, before even google released the OS, there are number of individuals who are releasing it. Yes, that's the power of open source.
I am using the binaries from
Chromium OS builds by Hexxeh
More than the OS, I love the way they demonstrate it.
Google, ofcourse no wonder why they are so powerful & innovative.

They have recently bought out a company called Bumptop which used to make a n overlay over windows 7 for their touch PC's and it had a really nice UI. If these two get together with some decent Hardware support then it would become a nice media Consumption Device.
With Picassa, Gmail , Google Docs and other apps it can also be used to create media but not at the level of other OS es like Windows, Macintosh etc.
I have also heard in the first demo of the software that the device recommended for Chrome OS would be akin to a netbook with solid state drives and most information residing in the cloud.
Disclaimer: the above info is speculation mixed with a few information available in public

Looks pretty cool, me being little old fashioned person, is little skeptical using internet to store my personal folders & files. Is it like no HDD required? How about playing old games such as AOE3 or NFS or Porsche Unleashed? Can we do that without installing them? Concept sounds good, especially the quick boot, but other things to be wait & watch.
