Chromium OS on a MacBook Air

This made me chuckle a bit this morning: Chromium OS running on a MacBook Air: somewhere, a mad scientist cackles in the night -- Engadget

Well titled post, I suppose. I strongly suggest that anyone who fancies trying to do the same should read the whole post first before he finds out too late that there is no turning point.

Too bad about there being no dual boot option, as the idea of Chrome OS on a Macbook is pretty neat. No way would I risk getting rid of Mac OS X, though, especially if there's still issues with certain features (bluetooth) being supported.

I toy'd with the idea for all of a second, so I could do a side by side comparison. Maybe when my laptop is a smidgen more outdated.
