Hi! I have became a moderator for the community now, i have actually admin'd and modded sites and groups in the past. I am a huge Chrome OS and Chromium fan and i have ran both variants, currently typing this on my chromebook in dev-mode actually! I also worked on linux in the past, was at one point part of an OS dev team for an Ubuntu derivative long ago. My other laptop runs linux and i do consider myself an amateur dev and bug tracker. I was aproved by the admin because i know him on a personal level and i will try to the best of my ability to stay neutral and help whenever

I hope this isn't considered spam, but I'm obsessing over CloudReady. Here's my review! (I'm looking for feedback on this video) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d4y5EB2r7oY

Decided to see how Arnoldthebats special builds run on my $600 2-in-1 laptop (which most builds wouldn't pick up wifi and can't be set up without that), and man, it works nicely! turns out wifi was the ONLY issue, touchpad AND touchscreen work without hitch. anyone else tried turning a semi-expensive or really expensive laptop into a bit of a tinkerer's Chromebook? it's nice. granted you nowadays have to pull the pepper flash plugin from the Chome deb that matches the version of chromium os running, and Widevine is just about out of the question without additional patches added to the build.

Graeme McCutcheon's MicropolisJS is coming to Chrome and Chrome OS, thanks of me.

Because of this thread, I'm also introducing the Apps category. Which, in fairness shoulda been introduced alongside Arc Apps too. Since many do focus on developing and hacking, this category is long over do - my fault entirely for not adding it sooner.

P.S.
WASD for moving around the map.

I've been working with this all day and have not been able to get a bootable USB thumb drive.  When I go to boot into it, I get a cursor.  No matter how long I let it sit there and run, I get nothing more than that black screen with the cursor.  I don't have a 64 bit computer to do this on.  Would that be my problem, or might it be something else?

I'm working on a Toshiba Satellite with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS installed.  When I use the dd command, it takes a little while to install, but I can't really tell anything is going on.  The Verbatim USB don't have a light or anything.  I'm at my wits end here.

I'm using one of Arnold the Bat's builds.  I've tried two.  The daily release for today, and the weekly build from the 22nd.

Yeah, I figured out it was the USB stick when I tried to put Chrome on it on my wife's Windows laptop.  Now I have to take another trip to the store.

Quick question: I have an Acer Aspire SW5 012, and I am having a driver problem on the Windows 10 install I put on my friend's PC that originally had no OS on it from when he got it from a trade on the Facebook forums and he was sure that I would be able to fix the drivers, but it seems like there's 2 versions: 1 with windows 8.1 (we have no key, so it must not have been that one), and 1 with Chrome OS... we were wondering a few things:
Would the audio driver (the one I mentioned before) be working if put it back on what I suspect was the original OS? To back my assumption of it will: it was working before the jump to Windows 10 like he wanted, but it was on Chrome OS prior.
How do I allow my PC to accept Chrome OS  if I have secure boot off, fast boot off, and everything else that would prevent me from booting Chrome OS from a flash-drive is changed so that it will accept it. I have the Acer Setup Tool 5.0 as my bios, and I really need help getting it back to Chrome OS because Windows really did a number on his PC.
What do I change to make Chrome OS better (or add and subtract from...) in terms of making it faster but more stable/fluid?
Thank you very much, and I hope to see some comments by the time I wake up tomorrow, as I am in dire need of them.

It is possible but the BIOS only allows Windows 8.1 or later.

Guys i think we should add more things to Chromium so it can compete with other OS. Like cloud etc

Netbooks belong to the past by far now because of the smartphones, tablets and chromebooks but that's just my opinion.

One thing i wonder about is that why you believe Chromium OS is heavier than CloudReady? The latter is based on Chromium OS by the looks of it so it shouldn't make any difference.
They are all cloud operating systems built around Chromium after all.

Hi there everybody.
Downloading an iso from CloudReady is that the same Chromium OS from this community?

So, I've been kinda out of the Chrome OS loop for a while now since my Cr48 is kinda starting to show it's age. However next mouth I'll be getting a new Acer CB3-111 Chromebook and starting racking up offline Chrome apps to use and among other things.

I can't wait!
