Yes, we know that the Everex CloudBook subnotebook has been delayed from arriving at the shelves of Walmart, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t get in on the hot gOS experience right now. As it turns out, it’s perfectly possible to grab the gOS from the CloudBook and load it up on the Asus Eee PC, which so happens to be the CloudBook’s direct competitor.
As far as we can tell, the installation of the operating system is a fairly simple affair, but you’ll need to grab the latest build of gOS (available here), as well as Ubuntu drivers from the Eee PC (here) if you want the WiFi to remain intact on your 7-inch wonder. The full tutorial can be found on clumpc.com.
Yes, the aesthetics between the CloudBook and the Eee PC aren’t exactly the same, but it should still be fun to take this gOS out for a test drive. And then you can switch back to a truncated Windows XP at your leisure.
