Google Chrome OS launched, source code released

Google Chrome OSGoogle’s Chrome operating system has been talked about for months and now it’s finally launched…with a few key hoops to go through if you want to run it.

Google isn’t supplying any pre-compiled binaries or images for their OS, they’re keeping that for their hardware partners to build suitable machines around. If you want to get in on the action you’re going to have to download the source code and build it yourself.

If you’re expecting a full OS experience you’re bound to be disappointed. It’s meant to be something of a portal to Google’s services and sites but, of course, you’ll be able to surf whatever webpages you desire.
