Open terminal in Google Chrome OS


I hope I am posting this in the right place. I installed the beta version of the Google Chrome OS today and cannot figure out how to open the terminal. It is based on Suse linux, as it uses YAST. Anybody familiar with this OS? Does it even have a terminal? I can't imagine a Linux distro without one.

That is a fake, it is not made by, supported by or related to Google.

You might want to avoid it, not saying there is definitely something malicious in there, but there could be.

Rosetaylor, I really don't understand what you mean by your post. But as Elliott said, it's not a legitimate release, what potentially means it could be running any sort of malicious software, including software to listen for things like credit/debit card details or other such sentative information.
