Chrome OS builds by Hexxeh
DownloadGoogleOS now offers two new Chromium OS builds, Vanilla and Flow, both built by Hexxeh.
Vanilla is simply a compiled build coming straight from the Chromium Open Source Repository. Some of the newer Vanilla builds may not be stable while there are certain verified builds listed at http://chromeos.hexxeh.net/vanilla.php
We are hosting the latest verified build in our download list.

description: Lastly, just what is "Vanilla"? Vanilla means it's totally unmodified. These don't contain any extra code added by myself, and as a result of this they get updated daily. We might in the future offer another flavour that does include the modifications you're used to, but I have more work to do there yet to integrate that into the builders.
Hexxeh also has released a very popular custom distribution of Chrome OS called Flow with advanced hardware support, an auto-updater, webcam support and an improved application menu & directory.
Flow has been downloaded 386,831 times at the time of this writing.
Hexxeh also offers a form for Flow fans to submit app for the Chrome OS distribution. Flow lives at http://chromeos.hexxeh.net/index.php

Flow is the most exciting version yet, bringing even more hardware support, an auto-updater, webcam support and an improved application menu & directory.

As Flow’s intro statement says, this is the most exciting Chrome OS we’ve found yet and plan to interview Hexxeh about his vision for Flow.
