An amazing operating system based on Google Chrome

When it comes to web browsers, Google Chrome has built a solid reputation for being fast and efficient. That is why it’s not really surprising that somebody decided to create a whole operating system built around this web browser. Chrome OS Linux is not the same as Chrome OS, but it is based on the same basic principle. It uses Google Chrome design as its main interface. One problem with this OS is that’s it’s pretty difficult to download and install. This is understandable since it’s an entire OS, but a faster installation process would have made it better. That being said, it’s still a pretty good OS.

Fast and lightweight operating system built around Google Chrome web browser

Chrome OS Linux Distribution is a fast and lightweight open source operating system built around the revolutionary Google Chrome web browser. It includes GNOME desktop environment, experimental GNOME Shell desktop, Google Music Manager, Picasa, LibreOffice, GIMP, Pidgin, Cheese, Wine and many more. Available for free as a Live CD or USB Disk Image.

Chrome OS Linux is not related to Google Chrome OS and it's based on openSUSE, therefore it is very stable and open. Unlike Google Chrome OS, it runs on every x86-compatible PC, laptop or netbook and it does not require Internet access to run.

Chrome OS Linux is meant for all users, from beginners to nerds. It is very user friendly and has the user experience similar to Windows.
