Chromium OS (what you are referring to) is to Chrome OS what Cr-48 is to Chromebook. It is an open-source project that's meant for testing new updates before releasing them to the public. In other words, it's in constant beta and not nearly as stable as what Chrome OS will be once Chromebooks begin shipping out. You can download Chromium OS, but it's a lot more work than downloading an executable file and clicking "install." Unless you'r a developer I don't see the point in doing this.

I don't know a whole lot about Chromium myself, this is just my recommendation.

Hexxeh maintains builds of Chromium OS you can throw on a flash drive (it has to be bigger than 2 gigs) at his site. His builds are lean, mean, and my emergency recovery os on my laptop.

Yeah, they aren't going to go out of their way to make a bata easy to download to the public. There are to many people who could not cope with beta testing and might draw the wrong conclusions.

Testing the OS on a regular laptop should be interesting. I think most users' desktop/laptop will outspec the current chromebooks, not including battery life.
