    This is a new project - if you like ChromeOS but hate giving up the traditional desktop environment, a new hack allows you to finally enjoy the best of both worlds - the desktop and the cloud! :D

    It can be installed on both 32 and 64 bit Ubuntu but ChromeOS will currently run only on 64 bit Ubuntu.

    Once installed, you can invoke ChromeOS as a window within Ubuntu or you can log out and log in to a ChromeOS session. Pretty cool! :thumb:

    Its brand new and some things still don't work but we should see improvements in the future and maybe 32 bit support as well!
