Thanks :) Can confirm totally worked.
what is the point cloud based os?
This will not bring new life on your old laptop , this is a far worse fate than recycling it ! lol
Tried chrome os flex it sucks completely obviously hardware support is not good and in my case network speed was slow as hell , also its not a fast operating system if you want something that would run well on your old machine then go with linux or bsd or why not android ?
- So what Chrome OS brings to the table when compared to linux ? (it is based on linux)
I think it might be the hardware acceleration (vaapi) that they have enabled at least on intel igpus that i have tested which can play demanding 60fps videos on crappy pcs.
Other than that its just a crippled and slow linux distro that will have to spend your ass on online applications/services to do the same you can do for free on linux.
Cloudready's chromium os was something good but i don't know about this, also google blatantly saying that they won't support older devices !
Why the hell i would like to run chrome os on my ryzen 7 pc dude ?
The problem is they will make an update in 6 month and all apps will stop working for security reason
Are you the brother of that other guy who explains cars?
Cloud OSes are stupid why would I want all my personal docs on cloud? What about gaming latency
Does chrome OS flex are now able to support native android apps as well as enabling linux?
Can this run Google Play applications in a virtual machine? Does it run better than Android-x86?
Google is literally malware. Deanonymization is scam.
Stay away from Chrome OS because at the end is going to flood you with ads. Google does NOT respect us any more.
Stay away from anything google produces.
Computer almost invented by UK's Turing, sad to see now UK is such a 2nd world 3rd world place in computing. Only ARM structure lasted.
Personally, I would never let this spyware infested OS anywhere near a computer in my household or business. It'd be interesting to see how much telemetry Flex sends out when compared to Windows 10 and 11.
Probs shouldn’t title the video PC OS
As of now the Chrome OS Flex (Unstable) has been changed to Chrome OS Flex as it's now out of beta. Do note that if you try to install this on a machine with multiple platters, you have no control over which platters it uses which it will completely wipe.
Great video Chris, I want to try chrome os-flex in the near future. Being it is cloud based do I need virus and malware protection after installing the operating system? Thanks John
Such a limited OS. Google wants to keep you in the box more than Apple does. Hope it goes nowhere.
chrome AR glasses wi;ll be soon
I would love to see Google Play on Chrome OS Flex
