i just dont think it works well in a VM at this point. I have the same issues and so do most other people. the resolution is apparently hard-coded into that image. I dedicated about 2GB RAM and a bunch of video RAM to it but to no avail. i think we will have to wait for a real alpha version before itll start to play nice with VMs.
Wells that's a bummer. I wonder how it runs natively. And I gotta wonder what timeframe we can expect a usable build in. The Linux/OS X build of the browser just hit a little while ago.
I have to wonder what the adoption rate is going to be for this system, and how much it shaves off of the traditional netbook price. Windows XP/7 aren't likely to give ground easily in that market, but who knows...
Its suppose to work from a SSD this is why you may find it a tad slow
Anything on an SSD should run faster than on a standard hard drive, but I'd think that the more powerful processing power would make up for some of the speed loss. A netbook is not gonna have performance on par with a MBP. I was just looking for ways that I could better use it, as I think it may have potential for low-end web servers and whatnot.
There is no point of this article as there is no UI is available its just crom browser there and some add-ons NO operating system is stuff there!!
DONT DOWNLOAD GUYS
Why not? It's fun to mess with. And yes, that is what it is, a browser with some extras. No harm in that.
yeah man, Chrome OS is a browser, that's not a mistake. there isnt really going to be more to it. the additions will be in optimization and direct links to different web apps. obviously there will be UI tweaks as well, but Chrome OS is a browser.
@ashwani2010 You've missed the whole point. Cloud computing and net storage is the direction we're moving in. Its inevitable. Local based apps are fast becoming a thing of the past. Why waste resources on single server storage when you can redirect modern computing power to harness the power of the web? You've only to look at the increasing popularity of Google Apps, Microsoft Office Online etc to realise that net productivity is fast becoming the mode de jour. Even gaming is more net based than local.
In short, Chrome OS is the thing of the future, and any software vendor worth their salt will tell you the same thing.
