    Yah that is bizarre, I installed Suse Chromium OS onto a flash drive and booted a friends HP which has the same Chipset that's i my nVidia 210... And it actually detected the chipset and installed drivers for it. So that it would not find yours is odd indeed. :/

    Yah, but Chrome OS is supposed to be the OS version of this. Basically, it's SUSE with what looks like the Bluestax interface over it - Which is nothing really but a Chrome Browser with all of the same apps connected to it.

    Anyway, if this is only sposed ot be in a Chrome Notebook or Tablet, I wanna see how it is implemented in that.

    Don't get too excited about BlueStacks, at least not in its current incarnation. It is based on Gingerbread or Android 2.3. That was before Android ever got serious about tablets. I have a number of apps that won't run on that version.

    BlueStacks had promised an Android version 4.x by now and it has never happened. Its appeal is mainly for casual or new Android users and NOT seasoned ones.

    While I like the concept, I wouldn't get too excited about BlueStacks just yet...
