    I just ran into a really nifty article on OMG Chrome about a new type of Chromebook case called Gumdrop. These fuckers are awesome. I just finished watching a Acer Chromebook 11-CB3 be dropped from 10 feet and still be perfectly in tact. For you Chromebook users here, you might want to consider this.

    Lol nobody in their right mind should be tossing their devices but some people do have butterfingers. I wish there was something like this when I had an iBook back in high school.

    It's a shame that those things work considering the fact that Chromebooks are awful and deserve to be broken. :tpi:

    Bought a clear plastic case for mine. I probably wont ever need a gumdrop case though. I'm not a klutz when it comes to handling electronics.

    I work with android alot, and have a good understanding of it."bastardized"? lol no. its pretty much and standard Linux OS but runs on smartphones.

    desktop... if ChromeOS and Android merge one point, dont be shocked. you can run some android apps already.

    I do apologize for the derail - my fault. I tried to nip it in the bud, but sometimes conversations just go out of control. :P I'll hush from now on and suggest others to do the same - if anyone wants to continue the chat about OS'es, there's always PM. ;)

    This will be my ONLY derail. I get that people like their OS of choice and that's cool. My thing is, I will respec your choice if you made it for your sake of use and NOT for the sake of looking cool like most Apple fans. Additionally, I really wish that we would stick with 4 major OSes nd stop with the crazy branches of Linux. Chrome, Windows Mac and Ubuntu and their married OSes (i.e. iOS and Android) are just fine. Do we really need to split the market more.

    thats another way of thinking that is which is stopping development of other OS's and advancements in technology.

    we have windows, it works. better use windows only.

    is the same as i eat meat only, well sometimes you need to eat other stuff to be healthy.

    I quite like what Ubuntu's doing with Linux - they don't exactly have the most efficient setup in a software sense, but they've done wonders in terms of standardizing Linux and making it approachable to everyday end-users - it's probably the most plug-and-play, user-friendly distribution out there to date. ChromeOS I could live without - it's good for browsing the web, but that's about it, hence I have a hard time treating it as a full-blown system. I'd be happy if it died out in favour of an official and wide-spread x86 revision of Android.

    I enjoy Chrome OS. If anything I wish more Android apps make it over but aside from that, I like having a desktop experience (Chrome) and a mobile experience (Android). The ONLY reason why I'm considering a hybrid Windows/Android tablet is for my job so I can give them their laptop back. Even with that I will be using the Android side 80% of the time.

    I like how this immediately went from a laptop case to some deranged hipster waving his raging boner for Linux around.
    Granted Foxi fired the first shots but hey. He was just postin' the truefax.

    10/10 LightyKD thread.

    truefax? dont be silly or the priest down the road will cum on you come and get you.


    believing in a 1,000,000 year old book and claiming windows is heaven sent cause the pope said so is fact?




    at least his views on gay marriage is modern and not 2015 years old.



    Ill make my own OS with Blackjack and hookers.
