Can't you put something more useful ...
Yes - Ubuntu Linux.
[Writing this on my Chromebook now fully equipped with Firefox, Thunderbird, LibreOffice Gimp etc etc thanks to the clever developer(s) of the 'Crouton' script]
Something I can afford please....
Why cant we have an _affordable_ laptop without the Wndows tax? I am writing this on my recently acquired HP11 Chromebook running Ubuntu 13.10 (+ LibreOffice, Thunderbird, Gimp etc etc) and I LOVE IT!!! (c. 200 UKpds)
A big "Thankyou" to the developer(s) of the Crouton script that I used to install my usual full-fat office apps, but most people I see wandering about dazed and confused in our local 'PC' supermart don't want to (or can't) get to grips with scarey 'developer mode' trickery so their only options are Win8 horribleness, or Mac priceness if they want to run 'real' applications. Surely there is an marketing opportunity here?
.... and Canonical?
