    What about this little note on bottom of the page :
    Chrome OS is not related to Google. Service provided by SUSE Studio. See the license.

    Default This is Fake!

    This is not Google Chrome OS, it is just Crhome OS. And is another Linux distro. Please pay attention to the smaller chars at the end of download section: "Chrome OS is not related to Google. Service provided by SUSE Studio. See the license."

    Peace!

    Site diabled for terms of use violations. Google still has a cache of the download page, as of writing, not that it really matters.

    What the hell? That was bizarre. It's Google Chrome! Wait, no it isn't. Yes it is! No it isn't! I'm not dead yet! What was the point of all this? Was someone was trying to pull a practical joke or something? And if so, faking a Google Chrome OS release is pretty lame. Why not fake a Windows 8 Alpha or something?
