Flint OS – a fast, simple and productive operating system built on open source Chromium OS.

Flint began with a vision where all applications and services we use today will be living in the Cloud. With the ever advancing browser platform technology and web frontend performances, it’s not surprising that most things we do today with the internet can be done through a single browser window. Powered by Cloud technology, driven by the open source community, equipped with an optimized custom kernel, bundled with the best browser platform and incorporating numerous user experience enhancements, Flint OS is here to take you to a new horizon of computing.

Flint OS works perfectly on most x86 and ARM based hardware platforms. We are particularly interested in making Flint OS run on single-board-computer (SBC) solutions based on ARM architecture, such as the Raspberry Pi, SBCs with RK3288 and RK3399 chips.

On March 6, 2018 Neverware announced about acquiring Flint Innovations, creators of Flint OS.

Chromium OS – an open-source development version of Chrome OS, which is a Linux distribution designed by Google to work primarily with web applications. In preliminary design documents, Google describes a three-tier architecture: firmware, web browser and window manager, and system-level software and userland services.

Historically, Chromium OS was using the Ubuntu-based Linux kernel for the first several releases, but have since then moved on to track the upstream mainline kernel directly, applying changes for the features and stability. The source code has been published in 2009.

Chromium OS “Vanilla” has been created by Liam McLoughlin “Hexxeh”, a 17-year-old college student from Manchester, England. He was building boots from a USB memory stick and included features that Google engineers had not yet implemented, such as support for the Java programming language.
He stopped building it in the April of 2013.
