Chromium OS Ported to Raspberry Pi

Anyone interested in messing around with Chromium OS on your Raspberry Pi can hit this link for the download. There isn't much you can do with it right now but its there if you want it.

Right now the OS does little more than boot up, but if the embedded version of Chromium can be made to function without issue it could make browsing the web on the Broadcom SOC-sporting PC much less painful. Then again, performance is a big question mark. Seeing how much the 700MHz ARM11 chip struggled with the Midori browser, we wouldn't hold our breath for miracles.
