How do I run Chromium OS?
Normally you run Chromium OS from a USB stick, but the system can also be installed to hard drive. Could be useful if you want to bring new life to an old computer. Be aware of the fact that Chromium OS can't be installed together with other Linux systems (or any other OS). It will "take" the whole disk.
The difference between Chromium OS and Google Chrome OS
Chromium OS is the open source project, used primarily by developers, with code that is available for anyone to checkout, modify, and build.
Google Chrome OS is the Google product that OEMs ship on Chromebooks for general consumer use.
About "good" USB Sticks and SD cards
Please be aware of that Chromium OS/ChromX is very particular as regards the install media. You'll have to use the very best SD cards there is on the market. Example: At first I used a Samsung EVO SD card of 64GB. Using that card it was impossible to install Linux BETA no matter how many times I tried. Then I installed ChromX to a Samsung Pro SD card of 32GB. That card worked perfectly well. Everything ran smoothly. As regards USB sticks I can recommend that you use SanDisk Extreme USB 3.0 or (even better) Corsair Flash Voyager GT USB 3.0.
All your system changes will (of course) be automatically saved directly on the USB stick (or SD card).
You cannot run Netflix in the Chromium Browser. But after installing Firefox ESR Netflix works very well! I.e. run the command sudo apt install firefox-esr (using the terminal window you will get after installing Linux BETA.You'll find Firefox among the Linux apps - screenshot.
