Google tools are fantastic, and now incorporated into a bran new OS. I have never been happier in my IT career not until when Google Chrome OS was released.

The problem I have is the issue of third party applications

I constantly switch browsers based on the features and what I am doing. I'm not a loyalist like most people. Right now I like Firefox because of the "no script" addon.

I've been busting my guts trying to run a virtual box of the Chrome OS, tried so many linux based virtual boxes but none of them work at all. Kind of losing hope on this one.

Can anyone give me leads on a site from where I can download a fully working virtualbox VDI file to run Chrome OS?

Looking forward to all your responses

Cheers

From what I can gather Chrome OS = cloud basically. The concept seems to be that your "PC" becomes just an access device to network-based services rather than supporting local applications. Which is fine if that's what you want, and fine if the cloud marketeers are right about the way our world is going to go. Personally though it gives me this uneasy feeling, like the one you get when your internet connection goes down and you realise the basket with all your eggs in it has totally disappeared...
