chromebook acer C7

Time to post.

As I was spending money on ebay... i saw the acer C7 chromebook at 129.99 manufacturer refurbished...
and i couldn't resist. It arrived and I'm posting this using the chromebook.

ChromeOS is not bad at all... once you adapt to it.

The only downside I have with this thing... is that since it's a refurbished unit, i didn't got the 100GB on google drive. :(

I have to say that, the whole concept is not bad at all. Every single aspect of normal everyday computing is covered in one way or another... however, things that I'm missing so far:

  1. bash... go figure.
  2. skype.
  3. ... can't think of anything else.

UPDATE: august 27, 2013 
After booting the system on developer mode i got a real bash... running on the browser of course. Anyways, there are ways to install ubuntu on this thing... .which goes against my slackware user guts.
I have a bunch of things to read in order to install slackware on this machine. Aparently I´m the first one attempting to do this.

I´ll keep you posted.
