After reading a slew of hilariously incorrect reviews about the Google Chromebook by Linux users I had to stop and ask. Are Linux users too set in their ways to even give Chromebook a chance?
The last line is so true in my experience. I have no real knowledge of operating systems, having mostly only known Windows. But I find it kind of endearing that Linux inspires so much passion.I only know one Linux user personally. Now, I hate to judge all of them by him, but he is the most suborn person I know. He is my brother and he fights change tooth and nail. He also preaches Linux like it is a religion.
I have to say you and the poster right above me impressed me. I love the way you said it. I mean you could have said people who use Linux are nuts, and they kind of are (in a good way) but you said inspires passion! Wow, so true.The last line is so true in my experience.

Yeah, there are a couple of Linux versions that kind of do what the Chromebook is proposing to do. I'm using one right now, actually-- Jolicloud OS, which stores basically everything on the web and is built around cloud services/apps/etc.I had already made my linux install suprisingly similar to what the chromebook offers: every page comes up full screen, and I can't really save to my local hard drive. I will miss having programs and settings I put on -my- computer, but not anything as minor as the desktop background. I do engineer my computing experience, and chrome is the mass produced version of what I like. Safety - and services of all kinds - comes to those in numbers.
