Five things Chrome OS isn’t


Some people still seem a little confused about what Chrome OS is, and isn’t, so here’s my quick guide on what’s really what with this forthcoming operating system.

1. Ready yet

I’m already seeing people proclaiming that it’s awful. Uh, people, it’s not even beta yet. Yes, even now Google Chrome OS works pretty darn well, but what we’re seeing now isn’t even close to what will eventually be shipping. Proclaiming that it’s already a failure or that it deserves a ‘D-‘ grade is, at best, ignorant, and, at worse, deliberate anti-Linux and anti-Google FUDing.

Heck, even I, who has little love for Windows, waited for Vista to be in beta before I started kicking it around. Give it a chance people.
