Google Chrome OS review


Just downloaded the latest version of Google Chrome OS, installation took a couple of attempts on my VirtualBox emulator, but third time lucky, it finally installed. Google in their wisdom have chosen to use Gnome instead of KDE, personally I think this is a poor move. But, one advantage is that since Google Chrome OS is actually SUSE Linux, you can quickly change this in Yast. Again, SUSE is not my recommended distribution of Linux, I prefer Mandriva. At least this is a stable version, which should have meant the installation should have gone more smoothly. Once you have the system set-up the way you want it, it works well, but I personally cannot see any major advantage to using Google Chrome OS over SUSE or indeed Mandriva. So I went back to my Mandriva installation and installed Chromium, this is a Linux version of Googles Chrome browser and works well in Linux, now my preferred browser in Linux. If you are interested in running Linux on your system, Google Chrome OS, initially is small therefore fairly quick to install, but I would still recommend my favourite Mandriva Linux.
