Scammers Distributing Fake Chrome OS Betas

Wait a minute, Chrome OS ships with the Gnome desktop environment, OpenOffice, and GIMP? I thought the whole point was that it was purely web-based?

Update: Ah-ha, it’s a fake. Just some scammers hosting on Google Sites. No wonder I was confused. My apologies for the false alarm. I can’t imagine that Google is OK with this, but apparently this site has been here for two weeks.
