Testing Chrome OS

Thanks to Lifehacker and @Tweakt.

You can download he Chrome OS torent.

Mount the image in your favoritevitualization aplication:

  • Make a virtual machine with VMPlayer…. Put as hard disk image (.vmdk), which you downloaded from torren.
  • I always recommend VirtualBox. Just create a virtual hard disk with the vmdk file, and build a linux machine with it.

Login as mark, with no password.

Then you can login to your gmail account, and play cool.

The system seems very simple (like a notebook linux), and oriented to be web applications client only.

See the following snapshot of the system:


Probando Chrome OS

Podeis descargar el torrent de Chrome OS.

Os montais la imagen en vuestra aplicación de virtualización favorita:

  • Os creais una máquina virtual con el VMPlayer….Poneis como imagen del disco duro (.vmdk), lo que os habeis descargado del torrent.
  • Aunque siempre os recomiendo VirtualBox. Basta con crearos un disco virtual con el fichero vmdk y construiros una máquina con él.

El nombre de usuario es mark y no tiene contraseña de entrada.

Dentro os podeis conectar a vuestra cuenta de Gmail, y trastear a gusto.

El sistema parece muy sencillo (como los linux de los netbooks), y totalmente orientado a ser cliente de aplicaciones web únicamente.

Os dejo abajo cuatro instantáneas del sistema:

Then with no doubt we can say that VirtualBox is the most durable solution, although Open Source.
