Installing Chromium OS

We have recently installed Chromium OS into some old computers in the learning centre at Hammersmith Campus. We will be giving students and teachers the opportunity to try out and experience what it's like using Chromium OS.


Visitor from Google

Oliver Madden dropped by at our college in Hammersmith and talked to us about many things regarding Chrome, Chromium and EHWLC Cloud projects.

Newbie

First Day
I met up with the group as well as with Oliver from Google which went very well, had a good introduction about the Chromebook and Chromium OS. 
I was going to try out the new DELL Chromebook 11, but unfortunately the machine was faulty but it gave me an opportunity to be able to try out the Chromium OS. The Chromium OS was installed into a Samsung NC10 Netbook which has an Intel Atom processor and was designed for Microsoft Windows XP; Its pretty cool how the OS gave a new life to the old Samsung Netbook!
I'm going to test it out for the rest of the week :)
