Google Andy Rubin, who created Android and has led its development both at Android Inc. and later at Google, has decided to step down as the big Android boss at Google. Having created the world's "most-used mobile operating system", as Google CEO Larry Page refers to it, I'd say his stint has been successful. Interestingly enough, he will be succeeded by Sundar Pichai - Chrome OS boss. Yes.

So you're agreeing with me...
Thanks?

I said it would be fine for her classroom.
I said it was not for me and I'd go with something else.

Are you surprised that someone on OSNews would demand more from an operating system?

I never said Chrome OS was a failure, don't put words in my mouth or infer things.
I said what I said, nothing more.

They're good for children, and worth every penny if you value security and being locked down.
They're bad for people with actual computing needs, and overpriced if you're going to replace ChromeOS with something else.

The picture editor only has "rotate" and "crop"... it didn't even have red eye reduction. You can't even Facebook properly on it.

I did not dual boot the machines because they're not mine and I didn't want to brick them. To dual boot you need to get into dev mode and replace the bootloader.
I did, however, do the chroot thing which only required dev mode, not replacing the bootloader.
The chroot environment was okay but still had issues due to the hardware. There was no middle clicking to paste and the alt-up alt-down as home and end keys that works in ChromeOS did not translate to the chroot environment.
