    If you run your own copy/copies of Linux, then you probably already have a favorite flavor (ie: distro), and Google ChromeOS might not change that for you.

    ChromeOS isn't any more a competitor for Windows 7 than any other Linux distro is.
    A personal letter from one of the most eminent scientists in Operating Systems research (Multics) can spell this out a little more clearly for you:

    I agree with compaker's point while windows remains preinstalled on 99% of new computers most people will not change it as it " does the job ", and most people I speak to don't even know or care what they have, as long as it does what they want it to do, there is a reason why firms use windows, and that has nothing to do with what is arguably best or quickest, it is a matter of trust and people trust Microsoft, shops know if they pre installed another op system on home computers people will simply go elsewhere.

    as for me I found anything higher then int exp 9 is quicker then chrome, anything less then 9 is slower, but having said that it is as much about how good the computer is, and how good your internet connection is, it would be nice if it was as black/white as yes it will always work faster in every situation, but we are in the real world.

    Well, it's more a matter of fact that MS has been on the desktop for a long time and almost all peripherals and software are written for MS based OS's. Many don't really have that much choice. In areas where people do have choice (server rooms), you often do see other OS's running.

    Phones are another area where people have choice.

    Hardly any Windows phones out there.

    Isn't chrome OS that web based one that has some UI from Windows 7 that is installed on low end laptops as it doesn't need hardware to run it since it's a web based system?

    I haven't used the Chrome OS. But as far as I have heard, its not for offline computing.

    I don't know how it can be compared with any version of Windows
