sjvn is a tool.

If anyone at OSnews wants to ban him from spamming his crap all over the place he will get my vote.

He is the Gruber of the Linux world. But if you look closely you will see that he actually is running XP, probably just like Gruber.

After reading at least 4 negative paragraphs of how hard it is to find and how difficult it is to install, and how you have to know C to compile it <gasp>, I find I just don't care that much anymore.

I can understand why a clueless person would like browser only computer, but why would anyone capable of installing Crome-OS want to do that? It runs only Crome browser and you can get that to run on most main-stream operating system.

Installing Crome-OS is like a surgeon amputating his own hands just for fun.

Thanks for the info. Based on the other comments I don't think I'll be trying this soon. But its good to know it can be done without buying a Chromebook.
