Google's upcoming new browser-based Chrome OS has gotten a lot of attention over the last few months. Tech bloggers and Linux geeks the world over are waiting with bated breath for any information on the new, open source OS they can find. If you count yourself among those vast, serried ranks of geeks, today is a lucky day indeed. Chrome OS is available for download.

Before you get too excited, Google still has yet to release the final, official version of the OS. However, one cunning TechCrunch reader managed to find a copy of the OS on the Chromium build site. He's put together a walkthrough and made the whole OS available on Rapidshare.

I doubt Google is going to be ecstatic about this leak, but there's not much they can do about it. Open source is a double-edged sword. This build of Chrome OS will only work on Linux boxes, but it's the best 'in' we've had yet. If you're curious, download Chrome and take it for a test drive. Be sure to let us know what you think in the comments. (Photo courtesy of Living In A Google World)
