    What about a Chromium OS forum on VirtualDr.com?

    The subject says it all.

    I also have a question about Chromium OS.

    I'm confuse about the download. The Chromium OS Homepage is not very direct about where to download the OS, and there's so many variation of the OS out there, which is the most up to date of the OS?

    I'm thinking about turn my netbook into a Chromium OS, but the version I have doesn't seem to work with WiFi or 3G and my device has both
    Asus M5A97 LE R2.0
    AMD FX 4-Core Black Edition FX-4350
    Thermaltake TR2-R1 CPU Cooler
    Klevv Neo 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866
    PNY CS1311 SSD - 240GB SATA3 6Gb/s Windows 10 Pro
    Western Digital Green SATA 6 Gb 1TB - Backup Drive
    Samsung DVD Writer SH-S203 (SATA)
    CoolMax CU Modular Power Supply 700W
    EVGA Nvidia GeForce GTX 950 2GB GDDR5

    Since Chromium uses a Linux kernel, you might try our "Linux & Unix" forum.

    Wikipedia: Chromium OS
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chromium_OS
    The most popular version entitled "Chromium OS Flow" was created by Liam McLoughlin, a then 17-year-old college student in Manchester, England, posting under the name "Hexxeh". McLoughlin's builds boot from a USB memory stick and included features that Google engineers had not yet implemented, such as support for the Java programming language.[8]

    While Google did not expect that hobbyists would use and evaluate Chromium OS ahead of its official release, Sundar Pichai, Google vice president of product management, said that "what people like Hexxeh are doing is amazing to see." Pichai said the early releases were an unintended consequence of open source development. "If you decide to do open-source projects, you have to be open all the way."[8]

    Hexxeh's work continued into the following year. He announced "Chromium OS Lime" in December 2010,[9] and in January 2011, released "Luigi", an application designed to "jalbreak" the Google Cr-48 "Mario" prototype hardware and install a generic BIOS.[10] The developer made the builds available in virtual machine format on March 13, 2011, the date of his most recent blog posting.[11] With no official build of Chromium OS forthcoming from Google, Hexxeh's "Vanilla" nightly builds of Chromium OS remain the principal resource for people wanting to try Chromium OS.

    There isn't enough interest and or support questions to warrant a seperate section.
