Google chart shows which netbooks run Chrome OS best

,----[ Quote ]
| The chart details which systems have been 
| âofficiallyâ tested by developers and 
| reveals what hardware works and what 
| doesnât. Several models are listed, but 
| Iâve simplified things a bit. Listed below 
| are models on which everything works â 
| 802.11 wireless, ethernet, touchpad, and 
| suspend/resume.


Chrome OS Gains Open Source Home


Ubuntu, Google, and the Future of Linux. And rsync too.

| Chrome OS is a cloud-based application 
| delivery platform, built for a very 
| specific purpose, namely those little 
| netbooks. Your data and the heart of the 
| applications in Chrome OS live in Google's 
| cloud. A lot of people will be very happy 
| with that. There are, however, countless 
| other applications that aren't suited to 
| the cloud-based model. Applications that 
| can only realistically live on the desktop 
| (at least for the foreseeable future). 
| Desktop Linux, and Ubuntu by extension, 
| will continue to thrive there and to evolve 
| into something even greater than what it is 
| today. Chrome competes with Microsoft where 
| Microsoft is, er, softest. The cloud. 


Make my OS Faster

| Google certainly has the clout to market 
| this OS to the masses, and brand 
| recognition that wonât make people run for 
| the hills. Itâs still Linux, but people 
| wonât know about it, and therefore wonât be 
| scared of trying it. Could chrome be the 
| first user friendly, mainstream Linux 
| distro tailored towards non-geeks using 
| legacy hardware?
| Itâs certainly interesting. Iâm anxiously 
| awaiting the release of the OS to see if it 
| will follow the same high quality design as 
| most other Google products. Iâm also very 
| curious as to how it will be received by 
| mainstream, non-technical population. 



Dell Releases Customized Version of Chrome OS

| Dell has just released a customized version
| of Chromium OS, the open source code behind
| Google's new operating system called
| Chrome, in a build designed specifically
| for Dell Mini computers. According to a
| blog post on the Dell Community site,
| several company employees were inspired
| create this custom version after seeing
| Engadget's video showing Chrome OS running
| on a Vostro A860 netbook.


Microsoft and Firefox engineering a Chrome web OS rival?

| But we can say that only for self-defense,
| Redmond giant needs an alternative to Chrome
| OS to offer its customers.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
