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 :)

Next week.

I am so excited about next week because we are going to try to give new life to old computers by putting Chrome OS. :) 

Chromebook First Impressions

So Aksshayan and I had opened our Chromebooks for the first time and it was very straight forward to use. Even when it turns on, it was fast, not even the Power-On-Self-Test was visible. Every app used is Google Chrome oriented and doesn't take much resources (RAM and CPU) to load them as long as you have good internet connection. We recommend getting a Chromebook for all your work and educational needs as we may in the future be Going Google.

Google Site now up!

We just finished designing our Google site now, you can check it out by clicking somewhere around, uhh.....................
