@Zeus: you should be able to build it from source (but who actually wants to do that?)

there's also this kid (i think he's in high school) who has a usb bootable build http://chromeos.hexxeh.net/

i too am excited about the native client. i wonder if anyone is working on a mono and/or .net runtime that can be run inside the browser (or os)

i signed up for the beta testing pool. 1 in a million chance but you can't win if you don't play: http://www.google.com/chromeos/pilot-program.html
