Work is in Progress for Chromium OS Support on Raspberry Pi

When the Raspberry Pi computer surfaced the tiny little machine was exactly what many HTPC fans were looking for in a budget machine. The machine didn't have much in the way of hardware on the performance side of things, but the $35 price tag made up for a lot of that. The board was made to run Linux for operating system and supported full HD video and Blu-ray playback.

However, an enterprising Chromium OS hacker going by Hexxeh has been at work getting Chromium OS to work on the Pi. Apparently, the OS will boot right now, but it's far from stable. The best news is that the project has received approval from the official Chromium OS team so hopefully a stable version will be coming soon.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
