Hexxeh has just posted the link to the next build of Chromium OS. This Vanilla build has loads to offer and if you are using Flow, you’ll be impressed. The build process has also been automated and now you don’t need to manually upgrade to the latest builds of the next generation Operating System from Google.
If you are upgrading from Flow, here’s what’s new in the vanilla build –
• Revamped login UI – your username is remembered and you can take a photo to appear with your login using your webcam
• 3G modem support
• Chrome Web Store ready
• Lots, lots faster
• Official ChromiumOS updater (my servers for this aren’t yet live, though)
• Browser sync
You could try the build only if Chrome OS is supported by your hardware and the build is still in BETA and is therefore not guaranteed to boot. The build even gets the Chrome Web Store to the OS. You could now have loads of paid and free Apps on your computer. We’ll let you know the results after we test it.
