Chrome OS for Dell Mini 10v

Dell LogoDoug Anson from Dell made a special Chrome OS build for the Dell Mini 10v netbook. He finally got the wireless card working, although you have to wait for five to ten minutes until it actually detects wireless networks. You can find the image as an *.img file here. Note: all usernames/passwords are set to “dell”. A tutorial on how to get a bootable image file onto a USB stick is available here.

Video: Chrome Browser for Chrome OS Demonstration

After Google accidentally released the source code for the Chrome OS version of the Chrome browser (see article here) I installed it on a Ubuntu machine that was running in Sun’s Virtual Box. In the video you can see all changes Google made. There’s an option tab that let’s you configure your networks and touchpad. It also has a battery indicator and a special button to login to some @google.com account.
