Run Chromium OS on your desktop or laptop computer
With ChromX, you can run the Chromium OS operating system on your desktop or laptop computer. It is compatible only with modern, 64-bit hardware, but you can also use Chromium OS on special hardware by using ArnoldTheBat’s special Chromium OS builds.

“They are many Chromium OS builds out there. Many more mature and ready to go than ChromX, for example CloudReady. ChromX Build 190824 is nevertheless more fun to use in my opinion,” said the developer. “Using Flatpak you can tailor the Chromium OS system according to your needs.” You can download ChromX Build 190824 right here.
