I agree as well - I have had numerous problems with my current laptop (almost all of them due to the unnecessary software). I've been waiting for something like this for a LONG time.

I'm running the following on my newly acquired CR48 chromebook. (Thanks Google!)
Firmware
Mario.03.60.1120.0038G5.0018d
Chrome OS
0.12.433.57 (Official Build) beta-channel x86-mario
Google Chrome
12.0.742.68

It seems very stable so far. I'm pretty impressed actually.

I agree. I just got the beta chromebook and I can't tell you how cool this is. I'm using it at work and I think it would be perfect for school kids. There is nothing for them to break. It's so nice when your computer just gets out of your way and lets you work and learn.

If we can just install this on our current laptops, would there be any reason to still want to run out and buy a Chromebook?

That really depends on how important the following things are to you:
  • extremely short boot time
  • near instant wake-from-sleep time
  • no OS maintenance
  • no malware maintenance
  • no deterioration in operating speed over time
  • no local backups to protect data
  • no apps installation & config when changing PC's

That list and more is discussed here.

Clearly, you can run the Chrome browser and web apps. That give you some of the benefits. However, running Chrome on a "traditional" OS still requires that the PC and OS be protected in all the recommended ways.

Who needs Chrome when you can run Chromium in VirtBox? Am I right?

Google recently unveiled at the Google I/O conference the new Chromebooks, including the Samsung Series 5, and the Acer Chromebook. Both versions will begin shipping June 15th (about one month from today). That gives Google about one more month to put the final touches on its new Chrome OS.

Google just updated the Chrome OS beta to version R12, also known as Chrome 12. This version, which has been in the development stage for a couple of weeks, will now be further tested in beta for a few weeks before it becomes the first version of Chrome OS to go stable. This will likely happen around June 1st - 8th time period.

So what does Chrome OS 12 contain? Well, it’s essentially Chrome 12, the browser (which is also in beta), with a number of Chrome OS-specific features. Those include:
  • Shiny new look
  • The important new File browser
  • GSM support improvements
  • Verizon 3G activation enhancements
  • All-New Flash player
  • (“Report an issue”) is now under the Wrench menu
  • 3G connection to the carrier fixes
  • Wi-Fi connectivity fixes
  • New trackpad and sensitivity setting adjusted
  • Auto update engine and debugging improvements
  • Power optimizations
  • Google Talk video/chat optimizations

Improved on screen indicators: brightness, network status, update icon. I just gave this one a try, and it seems to be pretty polished! It definetly makes the trackpad feel more stable than ever - and this was truly the downfall of previous verisons.

If you're eager to get an early taste of Chromebooks, be sure to check it out!
my english is poor ...

Remote Desktop on Chrome 12

Does anyone know if Remote Desktop will work with Chrome 12 on Chromebook/box?
