Google’s first foray into laptop hardware is proving a big hit with developers. Although the Cr-48 was just intended to run an early version of Chrome OS, it hasn’t stopped hackers putting other operating systems on the machine.So far we’ve seen Windows 7, Mac OS X, and Ubuntu loaded on to the hardware. But today we found out Android also works.AdChoices广告Liam McLoughin, otherwise known as Hexxeh, is a very active developer who was lucky enough to receive a Cr-48. He posted a picture via his Twitter account showing the laptop running a version of Android. We don’t know specifically which version, but would like to think it’s the latest.Hexxeh has also been developing an “any OS” installer for the Cr-48 called Luigi. So far it handles Windows 7, OS X, and Ubuntu, but now he’s got Android running it will probably become part of Luigi too. Luigi is desirable as it offers a very simple way of flashing the Cr-48 firmware, which is otherwise quite an involved task depending on the OS you want to load.Although Hexxeh hasn’t officially released the files allowing for an Android install on the Cr-48, Twitter use coggy9 found them and got Android running on his own Cr-48 proving it really does work.Read more at Chrome OS Site, via NeowinMatthew’s OpinionI realize that the Cr-48 is just an experiment for Google, but I am liking the fact it is completely open for hacking. When Luigi gets released Cr-48 owners will be able to have a boot menu for all the major operating systems available to use. How many developers would benefit from such a setup? How many consumers would appreciate being able to buy one piece of hardware and switch between different environments on it?I think it would be quite popular with consumers, but companies like Apple would clearly have an issue with Mac OS running on anything other than Mac hardware.There’s still a few operating systems to go before the Cr-48 can really be called the universal laptop. As well as the many different distributions of Linux, there’s also MeeGo and older versions of Windows. Is there anything else you’d like to see running?
