Early Build of Google Chrome OS CAN Run on Netbooks
We’ve been getting several comments on a recent post where we said that Google Chrome OS won’t be able to run on Eee PCs and netbooks. While this might seem not true especially since many developers and brave souls have already downloaded the open-source developer code for Chrome OS and made it run on some Eee PCs, our statement was actually referring to the consumer version of the Chrome OS. We were referring to the official consumer version of the Chrome OS which will not be available until the later part of next year.
That settled, if you want to experience how Google Chrome OS will behave on your netbook you might want to download the Google Chrome OS image from this site or this site. And check out the instruction on how you can install and run it on virtual machine.
And here’s a video demonstrating the booting process of Google Chrome OS on an Eee PC 701.
