Wayne OS
The open source Implementation of Chromium OS

Linux for server, Windows for PC, Wayne OS for web thin client.
The only web thin client OS solution from web-dedicated PC, school/public PC, to low-end industrial HW.


Chromium OS is a next generation OS project started by Google since 2009.
Wayne Inc. enhances its quality and incorporates industry-demanded features tailored for thin client devices.

Although both Chrome OS and Wayne OS derive from Chromium OS, Wayne OS distinguishes itself by offering enhanced business flexibility.
Wayne OS enables users to utilize source code and binaries for commercial purposes, including modification, copying, and distribution.

Positioned as an intermediary product, Wayne OS is being utilized in the production of final products and services within the thin client industry.


Limitations of
Chromium OS


Restricting user apps/code and allowing web-only access for security, performance, management are the philosophy of Chromium OS.
Thus, it is not suitable for multi-purpose/applications like traditional OS.


Users must modify & build the source code themselves since there is no official binary/deployment version of open-source Chromium OS.
Kernel modifications, feature additions, and license inspections require advanced development skills and time.

HW compatibility

Chromium OS is not well compatible with general PC HW.
Redeveloped versions of Chromium OS
have better compatibility but are still imperfect.
Thus, testing before deployment is required,
as the issues are mostly due to several GPUs,
wireless LAN cards, I/O devices.
