Google recently hosted an event about Chrome OS. During the event they announced a pilot program for developers/testers to try the reference hardware - the Cr-48 prototype. I applied for it, and within 48 hours, the thing was at my doorstep.

They really do mean speed!

Thanks Google for the surprise gift.

Now let’s get to using it and sending some constructive feedback - using just Chrome OS. No Vim to type posts, no Gimp to get and edit screenshots, no FTP client to upload images. Will see how that goes.

Much more to come…
