    Just because the Browser Is updated doesn't mean the OS will be. Plus this is not Chrome OS but a heavily Modified Version of a Linux

    @Joesph Honnoll Well Chrome OS usually updates a few days to 2 weeks after the browser. Chrome OS is already on v59 stable as of June 9th, 2 days after their post.

    Also this isn't a heavily modifed Linux, it's Chromium OS which is the same as Chrome OS without codecs and a few other minor things. (Chrome OS is based on Chromium OS just like Chrome is based on Chromium) Neverware basically merely compiles Chromium OS, readds the codecs, adds generic drivers to allow it to run on any device, and adds customer support for Education/Businesses. That's basically it.

    Hmmm I agree cloudready is usually 1 version behind the actual chrome OS & now they are like 2 versions behind in all honesty. Pretty soon 3 if a new version doesn't come out soon. So somewhat wonder what's going on in all honesty. 

    @ Joseph yep Brandon is right all chromium OS is basically chrome OS.

    Chromium OS is the open source version of chrome OS that anyone could use & create there own version of. Anyone can download chromium OS build & make there own version of chromium OS as long as you know how to add in the drivers & whatnot.

    But basically chromium OS turns your computer/laptop into a unoffical chromebook for free. Without buying a chromebook lol.

    Though you are right though, chromium OS & Chrome OS is based on & around linux. It is heavily modified like you said.

    It's designed to be heavily locked down version of linux. On purpose so all you use is chrome/chromium & apps/programs from the chrome webstore. In which makes it simple & extremely safe & light weight since all there is, is chrome/chromium running.

    Though even though chromium OS/Chrome OS are based on linux. It is still classified as it's own OS. Due to how different/unique it is from other OS's & how locked down/simple it is. 

    So you are using linux but not really in away. Since all you are using is chrome/chromium & apps/programs that are only run in chrome/chromium browser making it it's own unique OS & of course that's why they call it chromium/chrome OS. Since all you use is chrome lol.

    I fear CloudReady may be dead.  The Beta channel and the Dev channel do not show any new releases aside from whats on the Stable channel.  With Neverware's move to Office 365 they may start pushing Windows 10 S rather than ChromiumOS/ChromeOS
