Chromium OS hacked to run on iPad

Apple iPad logoHexxeh, which builds Flow Chromium OS-based software for Windows, Linux and Mac computers, has posted an image of what it says is Chromium OS running on Apple's iPad. No details on how this was done were revealed, but they are promised to be forthcoming. The creator of the hack did say it involves a few catches, however, which likely means compromises in functionality.

What the OS should allow on the Apple iPad, however, is HTML5 and Flash support, though this isn't confirmed. The crack has the programmer community excited, as it's the first time the iPad platfrom was successfully hacked to such an extent.

Chromium OS on Apple iPad

Chromium OS is the open-source variant of Google's Chrome OS, meant for users who spend most of their time on the web. It will be almost exclusively limited to web apps but will also need a relatively low footprint and run quickly on netbook-level hardware.
