Hexxeh Ditches Chromium OS Lime – For Now
We’ve all been waiting patiently for the next iteration of Hexxeh‘s popular Chromium OS Builds. Hexxeh announced the planned release of Chromium OS Lime after the December 7 Chrome Event which saw the launch of the Chrome OS Beta program. Here’s an excerpt of a blog post be made on December 15th:
ChromiumOS Lime is the successor to ChromiumOS Flow, and brings together the bleeding edge freshness of a Vanilla build and the expanded hardware support you’re used to in a Flow build. I know lots of you have been asking for an update to Flow, and I’m sorry you’ve been waiting so long. So here’s the good news. I’m aiming to release Lime within the next two weeks. It will ship with Lime AU as part of the image, but the servers will not be live at launch. The goal is to release within two weeks, but I’m not making any guarantee that it will be available within two weeks.
Chromium OS Lime Suspended - Indefinitely
Ever since the December 15 promise that Lime may be release within ‘two weeks’ it seems like the project has slid further and further into disarray. A recent tweet from Hexxeh reveals that he has suspended the project indefinitely because of incessant ‘pestering’:
due to endless, and fairly rude pestering, Lime is cancelled. I might return to it in the future, but I’m totally dropping it for now.
He explains further in another tweet:
pestering to the point where I get people screaming at me on IRC, 40+ emails a day and one person actually texting me (I have no idea how..)
Despite putting Chromium OS Lime on hold, Hexxeh says that he will continue to issue his ‘Vanilla’ builds as usual (this also suggests that Chromium OS Flow remains unaffected too). All this drama though doesn’t mean that there won’t be a future updated Chromium OS build from Hexxeh. I guess it means we will just have to wait a little bit longer and be more patient as he does his usual magic in the background.
