NayuOS is a Developer Friendly Chromium OS Fork without Google Services

People at Nexedi, an European based open-source software publisher, are doing a lot of development work on Chromebooks, but with Chrome OS, all your data is kept on Google servers when you login, and by default the OS basically runs Chrome browser with barely any development tools. So the company leveraged Chromium OS, the open source version of Chrome OS, to create their own operating system, called NayuOS, that does not run any proprietary software, does without Google servers, and comes with git, nmp and other developer tools by default.

NayuOS_Nayu_OSThe operating system should also provide a better Chromebook experience in China, thanks to the company’s re6stnet app and GrandeNet system allowing to have IPv6 available even when ISPs only provide IPv4, and to work around the unreliable Internet infrastructure in China.

The source code and instructions to build an image yourself are available, but the company also released binary images for several Chromebooks including Dell Chromebook 13, Acer C720 Chromebook, Toshiba Chromebook 2, Chromebook Pixel 2015, and more.

You can find all details on NayuOS website, as well as on the introduction page on Nexedi.

    The list of codenames and laptop names where binary images have been released is on the home page of NayuOS:
    auron_yuna Acer C910 Chromebook 15
    clapper Lenovo Chromebook N20
    leon Toshiba Chromebook
    lulu Dell Chromebook 13
    peppy Acer C720 Chromebook
    quawks ASUS Chromebooks C300
    swanky Toshiba Chromebook 2
    samus Chromebook Pixel 2015

    I think they are all Intel based. I’m not sure how hard it would be to build an image for ARM instead.

  2. Isn’t the best thing in ChromeOS is Google Services?

    My kids received homework assignments via drive. They usually started assignments at school (on school’s chromebooks) and seamlessly continued at home on our chromebook. Guests at our house can just log into their google account on our chromebooks.

    This NayuOS seems to me like sitting in a theatre with no movie. You got popcorns and the plush chair but no film to see.

  3. Does anyone know if i cab install this on a parturition of a 1t hard drive on a dell x 64_computer? Please advise
