Download Unofficial Google Chrome OS

We all know that Google Chrome OS is in development and will hit the netbooks by Q4 2010. But if you want to get somewhat geeky and try out Chrome OS, then you can install the custom-build Linux OS that puts Google Chrome browser at the center of everything.

This custom-build was made by a Google fanboy, who like you couldn’t wait to get the Google-feel in the operating system.

So what is included in it? It loads up with a Chrome icon and comes with GNOME 2.24 desktop environment. By default the apps link to GMail, Google Calendar, and other Google app services. It also carries a OpenOffice in case you want to work with documents. Most importantly as Lifehacker puts it, “It holds the latest development copy of Google Chrome inside, along with a pre-built Flash plug-in”.

Both ISO and VMDK(Virtual image) are given for download. Virtual images can be opened with either VMwarePlayer or VirtualBox.
