Nice, signed up. :) Not sure why everyone is so down on this ... seems better then a netbook to me (the opposite seems to be the biggest nock against it).

I think the idea has me set off xie;

the principle from what I understand, the chrome os is pretty much just a bios, basic in out system plus browser, you are using an internet operating system and remote hardrive for everything else

if I'm right, I have no real use for that other then superficial entertainment, do you?

my content is far too sensitive for that kind of storage and far to valuable to only be available when I have internet access

still, it does sound nifty for certain internet thingys and I do believe I will sign up too

Paris, I used the os on parallels, it is a nice one. It is one of those things were you have to try it to get a full opinion about it ...

It's basically a system that boots to Chrome. So you can do everything you do in Chrome now ... plus the new apps they have in the app store. I've heard that some stuff is stored locally till it is uploaded to the "cloud". Also I would imagine that everything to and from Google is encrypted and I'm sure it's stored encrypted as well. It's really not any different then using gmail or gdocs ... or even chrome really. :)

I just did a little write up on my site ... but I <3 OSNN so here are some pics of my unboxing. My battery is still charging (directions say to give it a full charge before play) so I haven't used it yet. Once I get a chance to play with it some I'll come back and let you know what I think.

hmmm... I'm not sure how to create thumbnails quickly from my pics. I don't t think I can attach them as they are all 1+MB in size and I'm lazy (aka should be doing my school work). I guess I'll just plug my post and if someone wants to steal the pics and shrink/post them that would be great.

What's That? A ChromeOS Laptop you say? SWEET!

:laugh:
