a bit boring..
let’s find out what is under-the-hood of Chrome OS.
wondering what was inside it..

Of course a slimmed down version perhaps..

Ok.if you are interested to know what is Chrome OS (what features it does offer),
is explained in Youtube Video below :

p/s : …but on my virtual machine (VMware) this (Chrome OS)is running extremely too slow..
compared to Ubuntu Karmic live itself.. something a miss ? LOL..

    Hey! Thanks for this! Great walkthrough.

    I just downloaded and played with this myself
    for the first time, and i enjoy getting directions
    for stuff to look at.

    Another alternative to the two part USB files:
    in the readthisfirst file, there is a list of mirrors
    to the ISO worldwide.

    Also: i did the wget app download (you might
    want to “blank out” the first failed attempt)

    Question: where is the “app store” for
    Android stuff? is it an app? is it like Cydia
    for jailbroke iphones?

    I want to walk around in the softs a bit.

      Uncle Foobar : ok.. had ‘blank out’ the first failed attempt on the app installation due to typo error of the app url..

      App store for Google Android is available at

      however.. it may not available at your mobile due to some TELCO / countries restriction..
      please check the local Android user community..
      or just go to

    App Store is not open-sourced, hence not in these kind of builds. You need to have some agreement with google to distribute it on your “phones”.

    You can browse what’s available in the market through the following hack from the same guy who brought you cydia on the iphone.

    Having said that … those who have rooted android phones … can probably download an app from the market and “share” it with you …
