Flint OS, a new operating system for Raspberry Pi

Flint OS

The Raspberry Pi community is impressive, but it also exerts enormous influence on projects outside of them. It may be that Flint OS was born as a result, or it may have just been a fluke. In any case, Flint OS is a new operating system for Raspberry Pi that will give us all the power of Chromium OS and Android to our raspberry board.

Yes indeed, Flint OS is based on the Chromium project but has the functionality to support Android apps, so we can run almost any app on our mobile on our Raspberry Pi computer.

Flint OS can be installed on both Raspberry Pi and a desktop computer. In both it will work in the same way and that will mean that we not only have a fast operating system to load but also a system that consumes little electricity.

Flint OS is based on the ChromiumPi project that disappeared

Also maintains Chrome OS cloud functions, so that our data can be stored in the cloud, something interesting if we do not want to load with pendrives or external hard drives.

Raspberry Pi compatible accessories are also supported, all thanks to the Linux kernel 4.4 that facilitates this compatibility. Unfortunately, Flint OS is only compatible with the latest versions of Raspberry Pi, that is, with version 2 and 3, being impossible or at least difficult to use in previous versions.

Flint OS is totally free and you can get it for your Raspberry Pi from this link. In addition, in it you will find the guide to install and configure it on your SBC board. If you have really tried Chrome OS and liked it, Flint OS is your operating system, but if you have only tried Gnu / Linux distributions, Flint OS can shock you a lot and even make you not like it. This depends on each one, but since it is free, it is worth a try Do not you think?
