Google Chrome OS, Useful or Useless?
A few days ago Comcast did a favor for me and stopped transferring network packets from the Internet to my house. This frustrating moment of my life lasted for quite a few hours. Fortunately, I had some unwatched movies on my computer to catch up with.
After Comcast started to feed me fresh packets from Google, Youtube, my website, and many other APPROPRIATE websites, I started to think about what I would be doing if I had a Google Chrome OS? Would I be even able to log in to my computer? I guess not.
You can find high speed Internet in almost every household in advanced countries. With the appearance of 3G and 4G networks, you can stay online anywhere you go. However, I don't think Internet availability at home is anywhere near that of electricity. Because of that, I doubt that anyone at home will use Google Chrome OS as their main computer.
Then I thought about the use of Google Chrome OS in enterprise. What would happen to a Chrome OS powered enterprise if the Internet is not working? Are employees going to take the day off? It may seem that this issue makes Chrome OS the worst possible choice for enterprise; however, one should keep in mind that most enterprises' functionality heavily depends on the Internet. Having no active connection to the internet equals a big disaster for them, regardless of their choice of operating system.
I think Chrome OS could be used in certain enterprises due to its low price in comparison to Windows and Mac computers. However, in order to become a major player in enterprise, it needs to stand out from other more flexible Linux operating systems that are available for free.
