The state of Chrome OS

Chrome 0

MrSeb writes "Google's web-tethered, sandboxed, Linux-based Chrome OS has now been available for a year. When it originally launched many naysayers claimed it would not be robust enough, and that the breadth of web applications was too slim to really make a splash in the PC pond. ExtremeTech's Jason Kennedy has been using his Cr-48 Chromebook since it first arrived in December 2010, and judging by his experiences, as long as you don't use CAD or non-linear video editing tools, the current state of Chrome OS seems to be very rosy indeed."
