Ease of use
Ecosystem (apps, drivers, etc.)
I searched the web and found instructions on how to load Chrome OS to a 4GB USB dongle. I installed it and used it on my Acer Aspire One netbook. I think it works great. It boots up fast and the wireless works fine. I like the idea of a simple and easy small OS just for browsing and email. I used my gmail user ID and password to lon on. The only complaint I have is that there is no way to shut down the OS. I have to hold down the power button to shut it down. I like that it remembers all of my browser settings on subsequent log ins. It is fast and simple and works. I connected to the Lala music website(one of the preinstalled sites) and played music all evening.
