Re: If any of these devices
If not, they'd better not bother because I will certainly not buy them.
I don't think they won't bother just because you're not going to buy them. Basically, you're not the target market.
But I am. I'm an unrepentant geek, I'm running Crouton on one of my Chromebooks, which I find very useful. But I love the fact that I can pick up a Chromebook, open it and use it. And so does the rest of my family. My daughter uses hers all the time.
For 99% of users it's does all they need (web browsing, and mail and simple documents). For the 1%, it doesn't work. And you're one of the 1%. Fine.
