Chrome OS Imitation distro, like chromixium?


I am looking for a distro similar to chromixium, or a place where I can download chromixium. Also, what are your tips with PXE booting linux? I do this with windows frequently without error, but linux seems to be a little touchy. I use AOMEI PXE boot software.

I had the same problem with sourceforge Chromixium can't be found and dead links on Git Hub too.

This link worked for me to Download Chromixuim- Click on the blue letters: "Chromixium 1.5 i686 832MB.iso"

https://archiveos.org/chromixium/

Here's Cub Linux.

Ok. I tried the link on archiveos for chromixium, but not cub. Chromixium booted with error "initframs: no live file system". Bad image? I will try the cub and see if it works. Thanks.

I just got a 404 error when I clicked the link to the cub linux sourceforge page. I will try the URL from the image as well. Haven't gotten around to messing with it the past two days due to my website redesign.
