If you've got a Dell Mini 10V netbook, you could be rocking Chrome OS before the evening comes. Liliputing reports that Doug Anson of Dell has cobbled together a workable copy of Chrome OS for the Mini 10V using the source code released earlier this month. He and his team have hacked in all the needed hardware support, and they've put it up on the Internet for free.

If you want to experience Chrome OS for yourself ahead of the curve, you can download it right now at this link. Bear in mind that the file is almost 8 GB in size. When it's finished downloading, dump the image to your flash drive and plug the drive into your Mini 10.

Other than some WiFi peculiarities, Chrome OS is supposed to work very well right now on the Mini 10. Boot time is listed as around 12 seconds, although it may take longer for your access points to become visible. If you don't have a Mini 10V, you can grab one here. Alternatively, you could just follow this guide from Daemon News and get Chromium working on any SSD netbook you have. Happy hacking!
