Dell : a new Google Chromium OS build for mini netbooks

For your Dell Inspiron Mini 10v netbook, you can now download the latest version (May 13th) of Chromium OS from the Dell Ftp Site.

In order to install the operating system on your netbook you have to download the .gz file, extract the .img file, and then prepare a USB flash drive with the image. You can find instructions there :  Chrome Story.

Google will not offer installable versions of the Chrome OS, but most of the source code for the operating system is open source, which means that anyone can compile the OS and install it themselves.
