    I first read about it on wired.com but can't find the link. Here's one from geek.com

    Well, you can preorder the upgrade from Vista for $50 right now, so it's obviously not free.


    As for chrome, I might try it if I have some HDD space left when it comes out, but if it doesn't support my sound card like Ubuntu, I'm trashing it.

    I also heard that the chrome OS will be "optimized for use with netbooks" which i take to mean that it will be very watered down to be able to be run on the netbooks crappy processors and minimal ram.
    Yeah bro, not funny.

    Most versions of Linux are free.

    That means it would be ideal for simple "just internet" computers.
    But not the case for the front room computer

    Even though it specifically states people who buy PCs with Vista between June and October will get it for free, get it at no charge, etc. etc. etc.

    Whatever...

    I'm looking forward to trying out this operating system. I'm duel booting Vista and Ubuntu 9.04 on my laptop and I'm using Windows 7 on my desktop.

    But I'm going to agree with one of the people in the article, this OS really is being overhyped. Google hasn't really had many major successes besides their search engine. From what I have read, it will be available for netbooks. Whether or not they will have an .iso isn't known. The Google Chrome OS will, in my eyes, be more popular among computer novices as a free alternative to Windows as Linux distributions have a reputation (one that it doesn't really deserve) to be incredibly difficult to use. Google is well known and trusted.

    These are just my speculations. I'm not going to get too excited.

    I know that this is an old thread, but I can't resist. Do you people realize that the Chrome "OS" is nothing more than a Linux distribution with a custom windowing system that prevents you from doing anything besides use the web browser? The entire thing is absurd, and every aspect of it goes against the goals that they claim.

    And it's all only made more absurd by the fact that they're targeting the weakest machines for their "OS" (calling it that makes me laugh) that requires much more processing power to do anything.


    Since everyone is mentioning what operating system they'll be going with...I'll keep using various Unices until I tire of monolithic shite, write some drivers for my hardware, and switch to Minix 3 exclusively. :-)

    Well, considering that I mentioned the age, I obviously do. But, as I said, I couldn't resist. :-) Besides, relative to the activity of the forum, it's not that dead. It was still on the first page of the section...
