Chromium OS first try

I've just tried the Chromium OS for the first time. Getting started with that OS is quite fast and easy.

1. First, download the pre-built image from (You can choose the VMWare, VirtualBox, or USB live image). In my case, I load the image to my USB following the instructions in the link above:

Extract the IMG file from the downloaded archive
At the shell, run the following (where sdX is your USB stick and ChromeOS.img is the path to the IMG file you extracted):
dd if=ChromeOS.img of=/dev/sdX bs=4M

2. Boot from the newly created Chromium OS USB stick and Enjoy the beauty

3. Install some development tools:

4. ChromeOS crosh commandline

Cool huh?!
