    So we have new software to play

    I totally forgot that Chromium OS is running on Linux same as Android. Wonder if they use openiboot or other method, if that 2nd makes hope for Android in newest iPhones

    Hexxeh would need a ported version for iPad to do that.

    He did this himself, I love hexxehs work.

    The picture has traces of Photshop tags in it. As much as I would love for it to be a native install, I really doubt that it is so.

    It is Hexxeh, not some unknown person.
    It is real. Hexxeh has been working with Chromium OS since the source code was released.
    I personally think he did it, because his work is amazing.

    I think whats more important, he got Linux working on iPad so Chromium is only one thing of many that you could run.

    Yeah that's the trouble... chromium does flash though, so I assume it would allow hulu to work right? If only netflix were flash, I would honestly consider keeping it chromium only for a while as I use my iPad for TV the most.

    Hexxeh said flash isn't working yet... Although he'll most likely get it working eventually.
