A Fan-made Interpretation of Google Chrome OS

Those of you waiting for Google to release its Chrome OS into the wild can get a taste already.  Lifehacker recently featured a homemade “Chrome OS” based on a stripped down SuSE Linux distribution and focusing on Google’s Chrome Browser:

“It loads up with a Chrome icon, uses built-in webapp links to Google Calendar, Gmail, and other Google services as apps, and carries a copy of OpenOffice, just in case you need some straight-up desktop editing done. Most importantly, it holds the latest development copy of Google Chrome inside, along with a pre-built Flash plug-in.”

While it isn’t necessarily Google-approved, they don’t seem to be complaining as of yet.  Who knows – they may hire this guy!
