The last time I heard a graphics card maker mention anything with Chrome in it it was about MonoChrome. Huh.. Is this MonoChrome minus the Mono? Remember CGA and VGA, SVGA, and Monochrome and all that. Those were the days and look how far VGA and SVGA has come.



One of the main attractions of a netbook is the low price.  And one of the ways that prices is kept low is through the use of Linux.  The "Chrome" videocards is quite well known for having crappy Linux support.  So is this chip going to be devoted to Windows only versions of netbooks or is SIS pulling their collective heads out of their asses and looking to support Linux?
