Google Releases Chrome OS Beta…. Ballmer’s Office Chairs Are In Trouble [UPDATE]

If you want an alternative to Windows 7 or Snow Leopard and you don’t mind a beta product, take a look at Google’s Chrome OS. The beta has just hit the Interwebs for your downloading pleasure. It includes Gnome, OpenOffice 3.0 and Flash Player 10. You need the following to run it:

Processor: Intel Pentium, Xeon or newer; AMD Duron, Athlon, Sempron, Opteron or newer
RAM: min. 256 MB
Hard disk: min. 1 GB
Graphics card: supports most modern graphics cards

Translation: It will pretty much run on anything made in the last five years or so.

I’ll be downloading it later today and trying it out. If you beat me to it, please leave a comment and let us know what you think.


UPDATE: The link has been disabled because this is a fake download.
