| Chrome OS is designed primarily to work with applications such as e-mail, word-
| processors, calendars and the like that are stored in the cloud rather than on a userâs 
| hard-drive. Google has already developed the software, called Gears, that lets a browser 
| run such web-based applications. Gears is built into Google Chrome but can just as 
| easily be added to other browsers.

| When you're used to the world of Windows or OS X, Linux can seem a little unforgiving.
| Not only does command-line access hand over the complete keys to the manor to any 
| unwitting user with access to the administrator's account, there's rarely a safety net 
| should things go wrong.

| The Acer has a built-in webcam, which makes it ideal for video-calling
| services such as Skype. Admittedly, installing third-party software can be a
| bit of a fiddle, and some of the advice available online threatens to lure
| users into the tangled depths of the Linux undergrowth, where few people will
| want to venture. But as netbooks become more prevalent, such difficulties are
| likely to ease.
