As someone using #ChromeOS as a primary operating system for more than a decade, I was really looking forward to this.
I won't be limited by the high-end #Chromebook hardware selection anymore and it will be supported basically as long as the Linux kernel supports it.
Chrome device sales ~doubled year-over-year in 2020, while PCs grew 11 %.
And according to audio from a leaked meeting, even Microsoft knows Chrome devices are “faster and cheaper, they are easier to deploy and manage.”
"In January, we announced the migration of the Citrix Workspace app for Chrome users to Citrix Workspace app for Android.
If you transitioned to Citrix Workspace app for Android on Chrome OS, we ask that you start transitioning back to Citrix Workspace app for Chrome."
Always bet on the #web, people. :)
I wish that was the norm with phones, TVs and other electronics as well.
Longer warranty, support and SW updates especially should be the subject of next big round of legislative push around the world.
When even after several years large portion of the general public still doesn't understand the benefits of #Chromebooks, #Google recruits #BillNye for their new ad campaign to talk about irrationalities involved...
• Included charger is the same (white) as the Pixelbook one.
- Smaller bezels are great but it’s impossible to hold without occasional accidental touches.
- #ChromeOS on Slate is still quite unstable. Had several random session crashes already.
- My biggest issue is that it doesn’t work with external monitor even though Pixelbook, hp X2, Acer Tab 10, Pixel 2015 LS and several other Chrome devices work flawlessly with it: https://crbug.com/910740
Overall, I love it, especially as a naked #tablet.
#ChromeDevice with backlit detachable keyboard! The only drawback will probably be the inability to use the keyboard comfortably on a lap.
So the most annoying websites bugging with request for push notifications you've blocked from asking again are now prominently displayed as disabled among intentionally installed apps and push-allowed webapps in Chrome OS 70 settings tray... What a way to encourage bad behaviour. :(
