Chrome OS - Doomed Before It Is Out of the Gate (Brain Job #2)

Chrome OS is one big lemon just waiting to drop and get squashed under its own weight.  This has nothing to do with the right-hand competing with the left-hand Android OS although that may be a contributing factor.  More critical is its foundational philosophy.

What is the fun if you can click on it and buy it ? BTW i bought 10 copies of OSR from CIKS in chennai as it is not usually available. Its published by 'other india publications' out of GOA. It costs 150 bucks. I'm sure flipkart will charge you 700 bucks for the same.... I did buy crossing the chasm from flipkart though...

If you remember your Dune, a refugee to a sietch who does not have the required symbols is summarily challenged to a thaddi, killed and rendered for his water. Hope that is not the case with rodinhoods :) After all this is not Jacarutu. Lets wait for Kralizec for that ....
