I had a dream.......
The computers at CSSC does not require a HDD, an optical drive (DVD/CD) nor a installed OS.
The TCO of the computers can be on the cheap.
We could juz load chromium OS on a USB drive, boot from USB and use our computer as if it is a super big web browser.
for docs processing, we could use docs.google.com
for multimedia, we could use youtube with the playlist feature.
for storing of images, i could use flickr , photobucket
for storing of code, i could use snipt
for IM, i could use e-buddy
for social networking, i could use facebook...
hhhmmmsss.... what i could do more on my computer?
but for software development.... it is a little bit tricky......
but.... it is still cool on my development computer.
but for scanning of photos from a scanner... it is a little bit tricky
but for printing of from a conventional printer... it is a little bit tricky
OVERALL.... it is still cool, for using chromium in a CyberCafe type of deployment.
check out the how-to documents of running chromium OS from my young padawan yonglin.
Chromium is still breaking on computers that sports broadcomm wifi chip. Altheros is still cool.
