Google Google has just unveiled its Chrome OS operating system during a press event at the company's headquarters, and it's pretty much exactly what we expected it to be: a streamlined Linux kernel booting straight into the Chrome web browser. The code is available starting today.

VM image?

All looks very interesting. I'd love to give it a try... Thing is though, the only option for trying it out is to download and install Ubuntu, then download the Chromium OS source code, build that, and then shove it onto a USB stick.

Why can't they just make a VM image available, like almost everyone else does?
