Dell is cashing in on the hype around Google’s Chrome OS which promises to change the way we look at netbooks. While there is still time for the official version of Chrome OS (expected in2H 2010), Dell has made available a compatible version for its Mini 10v netbook users.

The 10v compatible version is available for download here (instructions here). Though no virtual OS installation/support is available Chrome OS, you can load the 8GB image file on a USB to get this working. The users must be cautious though as this OS has gone through minimal testing and might bring in some issues. The WiFi connectivity is one of the features which can be troublesome.

While Acer decided to go with Android, Dell after playing with Ubuntu and Android is finally putting some weight behind the Chrome OS.
