This is interesting. If you want to check out Google’s Chrome OS and have a Dell Mini 10v Netboo then you are in luck. Dell has made a build of Google Chrome OS available for download. (You can get it here.) No virtual machine needed, but the download comes in at 8GB so you’ll need a USB stick big enough to make this work. Here are the instructions. According to what I’m reading this works pretty well, although WiFi might cause some issues. Given that Google isn’t preparing to offer this up for real until next year, this is an interesting development. I’m guessing we’ll see others follow suit in some form or fashion over the months to come.
