Google Chrome OS goes open source in Chromium OS

[ Thanks to smk for this link.

“The code is available now at:
http://www.chromium.org/chromium-os/building-chromium-os – I’m
currently in the process of trying to build a full system now (so
more to come from me soon). Right now the gziped Tarball is 232 MB
(pretty small for an OS) and the official build milestone number is
0.4.22.8.

“Google is working with Canonical, the lead sponsor behind the
Ubuntu Linux project on part of the underlying OS. Chris Kenyon VP
of OEM services at Canonical blogged today Canonical is
contributing engineering to Google under contract. So, that means
that there IS a link between Ubuntu and Chrome OS! That’s a
surprise. But hey it’s still all open source.”
