Try the Google Chrome OS now (as a VM)

GDGT.com has a VMware image of the Chrome OS if you want to try it.

You'll need VMware Player, VMware Server, VMware Workstation, or VMware Fusion to try it. VMware Player and Server are free downloads from VMware.com

Get the image here:

I'm downloading it now. I want to see how well it works.

I've been reading up on this for a while now. Can't wait to give it a try and see how system performance is.

Yea, I think it has some real potential on the netbook market. There is no fuckin' way I would want this in an enterprise environment.

Well it boots fast for sure.
I'll play with it some more, but so far for netbooks or nettops this is pretty cool
