Another ChromeOS build

Admit it, such an Operating System would be nice to be in a usb stick and be used from any kind of pc. This is a reality and also nowadays we have automatic updates so that you don’t need to create another image with the latest build.

Hexxeh really made a good job on this. Here is the link of his built: http://chromeos.hexxeh.net/ . You may check the wiki for compatibility issues. In my HP G7000 it didn’t log in at all, but the previous versions I tried on my desktop seem to work smoothly. I wonder, how I can connect to my google account if the ChromeOS can’t find my wireless card, and how can I tell it in which network to connect…

But again I was a bit bored to try out the cables so I’ll keep the question for me. For now it seems there isn’t an official Google Chrome OS blog so we are to be informed of updates from numerous other sites. Anyway, just be a bit patient. It will come eventually.

Google Chrome OS

Tried to compile it but failed. It resulted in a couple of errors and I was very borred to install it on my laptop anyway. So, what does someone when the only thing he wants is test it? Virtualization!!!!

So, I found a prebuilt image with it. Loaded it in Virtual box, started it, and……that’s it. Nothing else. I normally logged, and saw the chrome browser, and I browsed. I had a really amazing browsing. Couldn’t download anything though, because in Chrome OS you can’t store locally your files.

I admit it’s very stable, until a page isn’t compatible with it… then the whole thing sucks. Anyway, I shall wait with my ultra amazing linux OS, until Chrome will be compatible with Quake Live. I also recall that people use netbooks to browse facebook, and chat in Live Messenger. What reason would anyone have to use ChromeOS if they can’t install the second? Use Meebo or something? Browsing FTW is it?

Bah, I shall wait the stable version. After all its Google. All hail Google.

Google Wave

Recently I had an invitation for Google Wave. With only 2 friends there, it wasn’t fun at all. But now I have to spare 8 invitations to friends :D

In general Google Wave is a fine web application. Most of all its a communication application. With Google Wave you can’t find ex-classmates, join groups, or things like that you do to facebook. However you can speak real-time to friends, make easily a poll and discuss about something with friends easily.  It’s interface is nice and smooth, as always to Google products.

I keep wondering what its use would be, and if it beat Facebook. With its own API in no time applications will be built that can cover all the facebook features. It all depends on the community. Also I keep wondering what will it be when google release Google Chrome OS. They are all promising but unseen so far.

I love Google but these actions are really risky, and I keep wondering if they succeed. By the way, to browse Google Wave with Internet Explorer you will need Chrome framework installed.
