    Default drivers

    The software architecture is simple Google Chrome running within a new windowing system on top of a Linux kernel.

    I'm quite sure there is a way to use some other distro's drivers.

    @Benny:

    I do not know anything... but here is what I have read:

    Arrington also believes the early build of Chrome OS will lack support for hardware drivers, which have yet to be built. From the sounds of it, Arrington is talking about driver support for basic hardware components like network and graphics cards as opposed to peripheral equipment like printers and scanners. "A robust set of functioning drivers is extremely important to Chrome OS's success," Arrington said. "People will want to download this to whatever computer they use and have it just work."

    yes ok, but then I'll just say, I don't think he knows what he's talking about :=) we'll see who's correct, but I can't see that drivers should be an issue, there are plenty of linux drivers out there :=) I once read that it would be build opon Debian, but I'm sure if that was just romours like most other stuff.. .
