unique hitsvBulletin

Ever wondered what Chromium OS was like? Why not try it. You can install it to a USB Flash Memory drive and then boot from the USB drive to try it. Here is how:

  1. Download the latest USB version from here - use the 'Download the USB image' large button
  2. Use 7Zip or anything similar to unpack the .img file from the downloaded .tar.gz file
  3. Insert a USB drive of at least 2GB in capacity
  4. Run RMPrepUSb and choose 'File-->USB', then select the img file you just unpacked (e.g. ChromeOS-Flow.img) - choose 0 as start byte, 0 as USB start sector, 0 as file length.
  5. When the copy has finished click on the Eject button

Now go try it! Login with Username=facepunch, password=facepunch.

Note: Most emulators will not work - use real hardware!
