If you’re aching to try out Chrome OS after taking a glimpse earlier today, friendly power user Mark Renouf has compiled a VMware image of Chrome OS for testing out in your virtual machine environment.
While Chrome OS is far from ready for the regular user, lots of us are aching to play around a little with Google’s young operating system, and this virtual machine-friendly build looks like a good way to do just that, and you can grab it via BitTorrent now. From The Pirate Bay page:
This is a ChromeOS image converted to VMware .vmdk file.
It was built from instructions provided on the ChromiumOS developers site:
Built from sources retreived on 11/19/2009, following the announcement of the opening of the ChromeOS source code.
Shared user password (for sudo, etc is ‘chromeos’)
If you give it a download and try it out, let’s hear how it worked for you (and share any images you manage to grab) in the comments.
