Splashtop Linux Is a Chrome OS Browser-based Alternative

by Keith Vance

Splashtop Linux has been around for a while as an OEM-installed OS, but now it's downloadable.

Google's has been diddling with Chrome OS for what seems like years now, but for those tired of waiting for a browser-based alternative can check out Splashtop Linux right now.

Computerworld's Katherine Noyes has the story.

"Splashtop Linux has already been around for some time as an OEM-installed Linux distribution on hardware from vendors including Acer, ASUS, Dell, HP, Lenovo and LG," Noyes reported. "On Wednesday, however, its maker released the instant-on operating system as a free download, making it widely available to anyone."

Splashtop CTO and co-founder Phil Sheu said, "With Splashtop OS, users don't need to buy new dedicated hardware, and they don't need to wait for six months."
