Got to chew over all the recent Google News with Tom Merritt, Jeff Jarvis, and Kevin Purdy this week while Leo was at the Le Web conference. We spent a lot of time talking about ChromeOS and the Cr-48, and during the show I said I was dubious about a web-only computing experience, and that I didn’t know how I’d write, compile, test, and manage code using it. Since then I’ve received my Cr-48 and begun trying it out for myself, and jQuery creator John Resig described how he conceivably would program on it day-to-day. The fact that there’s a terminal with the ability to SSH into a remote server–and more robust “chromoting” remote desktop capabilities to come–make ChromeOS a much more viable everyday computer for me. More on living with the Cr-48 after I spend more time with it.
