Try Chrome OS on Your Windows PC

Why You Choose to Run Chrome OS?

You really have very little use for a big, powerful computer since all you do with it is check emails and browse website every day. What you really need is an ultra-simple computer that does absolutely nothing else except provides you with an instant link to the Internet where you can do what you want to do, without dealing with all of the nuances and problems that a full-fledged computer operating system brings.

This is the niche that Chromebook attempt to solve. It's super quick to boot up, moves fast, and is relatively pain-free since it is, in effect, just a browser. Whether you want to install Chrome OS on your own computer running Windows, you'll need to do a little work to get it up and running.

This OS is all about browsing the web. For example, the "file explorer" is essentially a way to access your Google Drive account. When you download "apps" using the store, you'll discover that these are Chrome browser apps, not so much full-fledged computer applications.

That's it! It's certainly more workable than buying yourself a Chromebook, but you get the advantage of picking your hardware, or using the hardware you already have.
