    Strange. Broadcom cards seem to work fine in Linux.

    woo, I knew my sony viao w series did more than just look pretty!

    Maybe I'll give this a go - assuming it can dual boot with win7!

    ACER Aspire One wireless does NOT work with Atheros Wireless. However, LAN works fine. Will update as we are working on it.

    If interested, www.whytwitter.co.uk can supply latest Chrome OS downloads, bootable from USB or CD (ISO, IMG) to be tested on various platforms, notebooks, PCs or Laptops, without using VMs. Just ask and we give you d/l link.

    We will set up a forum over the next days, please register or send email to info@whytwitter.co.uk

    Suggestion:
    If we set up a forum/link list of models to be added/confirmed by users/developers as a trusted source - it should cut down development time significantly. We will keep OS updates in one clean repository.

    Comments welcome.

    No official support for my Dell Mini 9 on there, or even it's business-aimed twin the Vostro 90. Probably something to do with the fact that it's a discontinued model. Nonetheless, some talented hacker will probably get it running - this is open source after all - but I don't think I'm that eager to try it out yet...

    Can't wait until I can install it, maybe this weekend.

    I have a perfectly working fine copy of Windows 7 on my HP. Can't think of any good reason to bother with Chrome.

    I think that list has actually been updated UberTiger since this was first posted.
