    Get a Taste of Google Chrome OS With Chromium OS

    What is Chromium OS Lime? It's a lightweight, open source and lightning-fast operating system for your notebook, netbook, or even desktop.

    With out-of-the-box support for HTML5, Flash and Java, containing the familiar environment of Google Chromium/Chrome, the entire web is at your fingertips in a few seconds with Chromium OS Lime.

    Chromium OS Lime offers a mix between bleeding edge features of the Chromium OS Vanilla build but with the extra hardware support provided in the Chromium OS Flow build.

    Chromium OS Lime is the latest build of the Chromium Operating System built by Hexxeh, and it supposed to work out-of-the-box with many modern and old hardware components, such as:

    Broadcom Wi-Fi - BCM43XX;
    Ralink Wi-Fi - RT24XX, RT28XX, RT30XX;
    Realtek Wi-Fi - R8187SE, R8712U, RTL73, RTL8180, RTL8187, RTL8192XX;
    nVidia GPUs - 6 series and newer;
    ATi/AMD GPUs - HD2900 and newer.





    How to install Chromium OS Lime on your USB drive:

    It's pretty simple. Just download the ChromiumOS Lime zip archive from here, and extract the image on your desktop. Next, you need to install a simple tool called Ubuntu ImageWriter (click the link below if you're running Ubuntu) or Windows Image Writer (if you're on Windows):

    Once the application is installed, just fire it up and burn the Chromium OS Lime IMG image to your blank USB flash drive (must be 4GB or more).

    Once the installation is done you can boot from the newly created Chromium OS USB stick!
