Google It looks like Dell is already pretty excited about Google's Chrome OS, as the company has released a highly experimental USB key image of the new operating system. It's made specifically for the Dell Mini 10v, but is far, far from stable of perfect. "It contains a functioning image of my USB key loaded with ChromiumOS. In addition, I have made a best effort attempt to get the Broadcom Wi-Fi adapter working in this image. It's definitely not perfect (read: highly experimental, untested, unstable, yada yada...) but it does appear to function."

It is not like the average home user needs Access or Powerpoint.

Maybe not Access, but Powerpoint? Seriously? I know that there are places on Earth where the norm is to use PDF/whatever for presentations, but, at least in my native country, PPT is so entrenched it is not funny. Not to mention the lousy speeches they give.

I'm already trying my very best to migrate people to OO.o / PDF, but there _are_ some real differences. For example, the graphing functions in OO.o is missing x errorbars (which in a scientific setting is hilarious)(I don't know if this has been rectified, though).
