Chromium OS doesn't contain the proprietary fun bits (like Netflix) that turns "Chromium" into "Chrome", so it automatically makes that route less desirable to vendors.

also, the internet says Google filed for a trademark on "Chromium". Mozilla/Firefox have used their trademarks in the past to control how people distribute things called "Firefox" to the point where they have a pretty strong say in things downstream from them.

I know of at least two open source projects that have used the name "Chromium" long before Google did, so I doubt that trademark would be worth much?
