Chrome OS – The Right OS for Many

I am convinced that Google’s Chrome OS is highly underrated and under appreciated. I have been testing an ARM based Chromebook as well as an ARM based Chomestick with great results. If your primary email address is @gmail.com, and if most of your computer activity is email, messaging, and light document prep, you don’t need the complexity of Windows or Linux. And, if you think that Mac OS is simple to use, you have not tried Chrome.

I especially like the Asus Chromebit that arrived yesterday and which is now stuck on the back of a several year old Sony Bravia in the den. I plan to use it where I need a web browser to access content that is not already integrated into TiVo. Paired with a small Logitech wireless keyboard, it is all I need in the den and will free up the i5 Windows 10 machine that was previously used for web streaming.

  1. Wired published a great article yesterday, by David Pierce. It supports the idea that I put forward last month that Chromebooks are all most computer users need.
