Google Chrome OS beta is ready to download

As many of you had seen a preview of Google Chrome OS on my blog about a month back. I am glad to announce that a beta has just been released to public. The announcement has been made on Google Chrome Website & can be found at:  Google Chrome OS Beta release announcement . Ah not to mention I love the idea of google providing a virtual appliance to run on VMware Player for people to try their OS without having to install it. I believe it is a quite smart idea & will help the testing to spread a lot faster. Ah they still offer an installable version of the beta though :). So enjoy the ride.

Below is what had came on Google announcement Description:
