it is just a browser kiosk with an app store. i used a vm to try it out and i was unimpressed.
i guess i feel like if i were going to a hacker thing i wouldn't mind grabbing a cheap one just to browse the web without having to worry about getting hacked since i could have a second gmail account just for the chromebook and wipe the account and format and restore the chrome book while still on vacation then i could keep it for the next time or just sell it on ebay or something. but i don't g

Turn on developer mode, then aptget install (1)

Dude, get a clue

boot in dev mode, then you can apt-get install any shit you like.

Else its good for the average joe, hell, I use chrome 99% of my time in Windows, file managers and remote desktop are just things on the side, that chrome can do as well.

i couldn't figure out how to boot into dev mode from within a virtual machine, there is no f8 button on a vm

Why your writing looks so ugly (0)

Anonymous Coward | 1 year,9 days | (#44849485)

Larry Wall once said that your code should look nice. That it should look pleasing to the eye.

The same could be said for one's prose.

Yours is ugly. Like a retard, you don't separate your paragraphs, and you refuse, for some faggy reason, to use the shift key.

The result: prose that is not pleasing to the eye. Prose that looks ugly.

And it occurred to me... you insist on writing that way.... in making your prose look ugly... because you ARE ugly. Because your life is a train wreck. Why should your prose be beautiful, when YOU are not beautiful?

My advice to you is.... try to bring more beauty in your life. How you writing looks is would be a good start.

But I have no doubt that, being the faggot that you are, you will continue to write like a retard.
