Chromium OS Vanilla Is a Plain-Jane Browser-Based Distro
The Chromium OS Vanilla Build by Hexxeh is a no-frills approach to trying out the concept of a browser-based Linux operating system without buying a branded Google Chromebook. It boots from a USB drive on any compatible computer. Unlike CR OS, Chromium OS boots into the Chrome browser environment. It does not have a full Linux desktop under it to run other Linux applications. Vanilla Build 4208 is the latest rendition of the Chromium/Chrome OS project developed by Liam McLoughlin, also known as Hexxeh. It was released on April 20.
