5. Use a bridge network instead of NAT.
6. Finish up and boot up!
7. Use your Gmail/Google Account to login.

BEWARE: This does access the internet with your gmail account, there is no way to use it without doing so. If you feel uncomfortable with using your gmail account either make a random one and use that or just don't use Google Chrome OS.

Sorry if its a tad vague, half awake, 5:38am, and just uninstalled VMware lol.
Thanks DNG. I got it installed in VMWare. Seems like it's pretty barebones at the moment, but I can see the potential here. I don't think MS has much to worry about, even in the NetBook market...
Keep in mind this is only for development of applications and whatnot for it. They didn't need to release the latest/greatest version. Only what works.

If you guys are worried about this prebuilt image...you could build it yourself

It isn't as hard as it sounds...I think I am going to compile an image myself this evening

Yeah. Its not that hard. I did it last night but I was under the impression it'd have all the graphical effects. So I deleted it when my version didn't. Then I found out it was meant to not have them.

Here is an interesting article.

I don't necessarily agree with it though. I think Google may be on the right track.

This could be the future of computing.
