This beta version is a fake the real Chrome OS. Clay posted a comment:
This beta is a fake the real Chrome OS won't be using GNOME or KDE they are making there own windowing system also if you do go to the download page at the bottom it says:Chrome OS is not related to Google. Service provided by SUSE Studio.So this is clearly not the real beta it just seems like that because they put it on google sites.
