    ChromeOS - Where to try?

    I had tried Chrome OS in the past and would be very curious to see where it's at now. Sounds like it's been maturing substantially.

    Does anyone know where to try it out at? hexxeh no longer makes new builds so I'm curious if there's any other outlet to get them.

    (Sorry if this was a dumb question)

    The OP is talking about the full blown ChromeOS not just the Chrome browser. Not sure where to get ahold of it, though.

    That Google search brings up Hexxeh's old site, which was the main location for "ChromiumOS" builds but he has since stopped updating it as the last build was in April.

    It sounds like there's been some solid advancements here, enough to make me curious. Is the CR-48 still seeing updates or has that been put out to pasture?

    Has anyone tried these: http://chromium.arnoldthebat.co.uk/

    I have actually tried the .vdi (virtualbox image)builds from http://chromium.arnoldthebat.co.uk/ a few times and have never had any real issue with them, they are a bit hit and miss at times though i.e one build will work out of the box no problems the next wont work at all.
