    If Chrome OS is Linux, can't someone create their own?


    Can't you make your own Chrome OS with Ubuntu, like not fully with all the logos and stuff like that, but very similar? Using Slingshot for the menu, and Ubuntu logo for that, and Firefox/Chromium for internet? I mean I guess I could do that myself, but someone should do that.

    If you make it with Ubuntu wouldn't it be something like Chrombuntu OS? Sounds kinda groovy.
    I wouldn't reccomend using anyone's Logo's without seeking sound legal advice.
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.
    All new users please read this.** Forum FAQS. ** Adopt an unanswered post.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.
