Well, I'm writing this from my Asus EeePC running Google Chrome OS. So far the only way I've found to do this is to run it virtually or compile it for yourself, but now some amazing 17-year-old has made an image that you can put on a flash drive and then boot from that flash drive.

Cool, huh?

Wanna try it? All you need is a 2gb flash drive and this image/something to extract it to your USB.

You can find this project here:

The VM I tried was extremely slow – far too slow to be useful.
