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.

See this pic, that is the second version that i have.

yeah, i have both of the chrome 4 Linux web browsers. one is the normal chrome that we know, the other has a few subtle changes, the big one is that there is a clock in the title bar, and a few extra buttons.

both aer .deb file, let me know if any one wants them.

in this web folder is the Chrome 4 "Chrome OS" web browser, with the clock and extras, along with the binary blob drivers for broadcom 43xx wireless, so that upon installing them, reboot, and your broadcom wifi card will work.

^ Everything you read about Google is real, like Google Browser, Google OS, Gdrive, "Google Taking Over The World"..

It's true, the Matrix is running on Google's code. When you die your enslaved to maintain the code :devil:
