How To Run Google Chrome OS From A USB Drive

How To Run Google Chrome OS From A USB Drive is the title of a post at MakeUseof which, not surprisingly, details how to do exactly that little thing. Be forewarned that Chrome OS may not work with your hardware. Excerpt:

Before you decide to download Chrome OS, there are probably a few things I should tell you about it. It is in the very early stages of development, so there is still a lot of stuff that doesn’t work. In fact, it may not work for you at all.

You should also be made aware that this operating system is very simplistic by design, as it is intended for use on netbook computers. By definition, a netbook is a small and inexpensive laptop intended for very casual use such as web browsing and simple office tasks. When you launch Chrome OS, pretty much all you get is a web browser. Don’t be surprised if you go through all this and say to yourself, “I did all that work just to log into a freakin’ browser?”

So have at it, caveat empor, YMMV, ROFLMAO, e pluribus unum, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, etc. Oh, and MakeUseOf helpfully included the torrent link for the Chrome OS for USB.
