Linux News Today: You Can Now Buy Raspberry Pi 3 Starter Kits and SD Cards with Chromium OS
Dylan Callahan from the Chromium OS for Single-Board Computers project informs Softpedia today about the launch of a marketplace for those who want to get started with this independent project.
First, we would like to inform our readers about what the Chromium OS for SBCs project does, as its main design goal is to offer the Raspberry Pi community a port of the open source Chromium operating system specifically optimized for various single-board computers, including the well-known Raspberry Pi 2 and 3.
We’ve been covering the releases of Chromium OS for Raspberry Pi for quite some time now, and the latest build, version 0.5 introduced some exciting changes and tweaks that made using the Chromium operating system on these tiny devices even more attractive. But it looks like there’s a lot of work to be done to make it perfect.
Introducing the Chromium OS for SBCs marketplace
But today’s story is a bit different, as the Chromium OS for Single-Board Computers project has prepared something different for those who want to get started with using the Chromium OS port on Raspberry Pi 2 and Raspberry Pi 3 devices, a marketplace where users can buy SD cards pre-loaded with the operating system, as well as starter kits that also include the aforementioned single-board computers.
“In the coming weeks we hope to expand our project to start selling you prepackaged items,” said Dylan Callahan exclusively for Softpedia. “What this will do, is help us better serve you, the community. The first step in this process is going to be seeing if you guys are interested enough the help support this new endeavor. Now we will be eagerly waiting on the feedback of you the community.”
Therefore, if you’re interested in running Chromium OS on Raspberry Pi 2 and Raspberry Pi 3 boards, we recommend visiting the project’s new marketplace, where you can buy SD cards pre-loaded with Chromium OS on Raspberry Pi 2 or Chromium OS on Raspberry Pi 3, ,basic starter kits, as well as complete kits, which include the device, Chromium OS for SBC, a case, a power adapter, and a Wi-Fi dongle.
