I don't think this is what Google had in mind when it sent out thousands of Chrome OS-loaded Cr-48 netbooks to U.S. beta testers.

Users at the Something Awful forums have successfully installed both Windows 7 and Mac OS X on the Google netbook, which completely defeats the purpose of the cloud-based OS’ beta program. The complicated process, one which actually involved removing the entire bottom cover of the laptop, can be found here.

I’m all for experimenting with a new platform like this, but I want to see more hacks that actually deal with the Chrome OS software itself.
