What, exactly, is the licensing for Google's Chrome OS? Is Chromium OS an open source descendant or cousin?

Asked in the context of running Chrome OS in a VM on Linux.

See:

    ChromeOS wiki page: "License: Proprietary" with a link to the exact license. Chromium OS wiki page: "It is the open-source version of ChromeOS [...] License: Various open source licenses (mainly BSD-style licenses and GPL)" Could you explain which bits of this you are having difficulty understanding?
