yes, I just read in the next article that it will only work with computers with ssd, not hdd, and will not allow you to dual boot. Well, not much to see here, move right along. steroids

I admire the valuable information you offer in your articles. I will bookmark your blog and have my children check up here often. I am quite sure they will learn lots of new stuff here than anybody else!

With technology that reads brainwaves and allows humans to control objects simply by thinking about them, perhaps a more futuristic and dexterous system will be in the works in the future, allowing those suffering from life changing paralysis an opportunity to walk hands free and walk or even run. free business advertising

The narrator was only SLIGHTLY less obnoxious than Justin Long. I count that as a plus.

What happens if your internet connection goes down?  Or you live in a rural area?  Or one of those web sites you go to to do stuff stops existing?

 Sounds great for a lot of people, like my 12 year old sister who very rarely opens programs, but definately not for me.  Also, will it work with a nine year one computer?  On a live CD?

OK so it is hardware specific and is a linux kernal that is "dumbed down" to being nothing but a browser on steroids... so how much is this going to cost. And from what I see all of us firefox users love our themes,add-ons and gadgets too much to be happy letting the OS tell us how things should be. I vote it off the Island....

My interest for the Google Chrome OS has now gone away... :(

Chrome OS - apparently only for computers owned by people who really don't use their computers.

I'm excited to give it a shot just to see how it works.  I think that a dual boot could be sweet if you just want to be on the internet in a zip, and don't need much local content at the moment.

Except it is designed with specific hardware in mind.

I have not been following the OS very closely, but what I see here I was not expecting. Their target audience is readily apparent, and I am happy to say I am not in it. I dislike the entire concept of not having my data with me, and I do love the ability to micromanage my OS.

 for the things i would use a netbook for i'm probably going to be offline most of the time as i wont be near a hotspot. But mostly it would be word and light photoshop playing around. If chorome won't let me do those offline i'm not interested.
