Was glad to see such a positive reaction from sites like Liliputing and Lifehacker to his post from last week when he made the OS available for download. I noticed that it's still getting a reaction from around the web.

Since last week, Doug Anson's been tinkering some more.  He now has the image running locally on Dell's Latitude 2100, the Mini 9 and the Mini 10v.

Since some of you last week weren't able to grab the download, we've expanded the data pipe on the server so bandwidth hopefully won't be a problem. Another thing that will help is that Doug recently posted a compressed version of the image that's much smaller (302MB vs. the original that was several gigabytes). You can access the compressed customized Chromium image at: http://linux.dell.com/files/cto. The filename is  ChromiumOS_Mini10v_Nov30.img.gz, and the instructions for how to uncompress and install are here in this README.txt file. You can also click on the image below to get the files:

I also got a chance to sit down with Doug to chat about his experiences with the Chromium OS. He also ran through a quick demo as well. To see this and more, check out this video.
