I agree with you, but believe me, this time things are different, because Google is too professional to make a simple Linux distribution here is some real screenshots,

Looks very weird for me.. Why does chrome got a ying yang button? is that a custom or the actual one that they're going to released next week..

but they maintain the original mockup.. thats good.. i think..

I could have sworn that those screenshots were found to be fake.

Additionally, there was an accidental leak of a browser version of Chrome OS about a month ago.

Here's a link to the screenshot:

There's nothing really earth shattering about it. I think people have their expectations too high. Chrome OS is being targeted at netbooks.

But I guess we'll find out.

No...a leaked version of the Google Chrome OS BROWSER was leaked. It required your own distro to install it.

Most of the time, its the smaller or unknown Linux Distros that makes great innovations. Anyway, I don't mind another distro as long as it abides on what Linux is and was.

I know. I had it installed. Lets review what I said:

Additionally, there was an accidental leak of a browser version of Chrome OS about a month ago.


When installed, it had a battery icon and it displayed the time, as well as displayed the network configuration IIRC. Also, the picture I posted clearly shows that it's just a browser running inside a GNOME desktop. ;)

From what it looked like, it appeared to be a hint at what Chrome OS will look like, although probably with a bit more polish to it. I'm thinking it will look something like the browser that was leaked, minus the GNOME desktop seen in the screenshots.

But as I said, I guess we'll find out.

I will leave it up to your implied superior intellect to see whats inherently wrong with a browser from an OS, and a browser version of an OS, which is what you said. Battery icons and network configuration an OS does not make.

*sigh* We're saying the same thing. I never said anything about the leaked browser being an OS. I was trying to say that Google took the front end of their OS, which appears to be mainly an browser with pertinent information shown (time, network info, battery life), and made it available as a web browser, as kind of a sneak peak so to speak. That's why I provided pictures. Why else would the time be shown in the top left hand corner of the screen, as well as battery life, if you have a battery, when this very same info is shown on the desktop of the distro that's being run?

But no, you'd rather get caught up in semantics than try to see what I was saying. If you want me to say that my wording wasn't exactly great, then fine. Your wording was better. Then again, at 6:00 AM, I'm not always all there in the head when typing... Regardless, I don't know why we're trying to argue when we're saying the same thing... :rolleyes:
