Sure, the whole world and Steve Ballmer might be buzzing about Chrome OS, but a dedicated duo of hackers has been hard at work porting Google's other operating system to x86, and they've just released an .02 version of their Android LiveCD build. That means you're now free to boot and run the 'droid from your optical drive, install it in a virtual machine, install it for real on your old laptop, whatever -- just don't get upset if it bugs out on you. Anyone gonna do some 'sploring?

You can't control it with your mouse? Mine works fine. I just can't get the internet to work

I'm not familiar with Android though, is there a right-click?

Click and hold for right click functionality.

As cool as this is, Android is best used on phones until somebody programs a pointer system for it (ie an actual mouse).

Ok cool.

Other than not knowing the right click, I haven't had any problems using a mouse.

I wish there was a way to "emulate" a SD card so you can save pictures and what not off the internet.
