According to the guys at:-

 

https://chromium.woolyss.com/

 

Chromium OS is actually based on Gentoo, believe it or not.....

I wouldn't have believed that, either. Can't get much more 'Linux' than Gentoo, can you? 

 

The only remaining Linux distro where you still need to compile everything from scratch.....  :P

 

Limited or not, it still sounds extremely 'Linux' to me!

Chrome OS is just like Android. Its not like a typical release of Linux like Ubuntu, Mint, Fedora, etc etc. At its core is a Linux kernel, but overall its heavily modified to perform a certain set of tasks. In Android it is to perform as an OS for phones. Chrome OS is bulit to be a light weight OS that does everything web based.

 

To be honest, the link you posted to stake exchange the guy that puts the response condriticts himeself. At first he says Chrome OS is based of the Linux kernel, then says its not in the slightest Linux....

 

Chrome OS may not be a typical Linux Distro, but its still got the Linux kernel at its core and therefore is based off Linux (even if it doesn't perform like a typical distro).


OS - Ubuntu 14.04/16.04 & Windows 10
