Title: chrome os and registry
Post by: peterr on May 25, 2012, 03:00:25 PM


Hello
My son responded to the new registry backup that he uses the Chrome os which has no registry, just a sign in. It seems that all is in the clouds and he accesses his work and programs(no third pparty)with a password. Is this a viable option to Windows and the need to involve ourselves with a/v programs, imaging programs and the like. He says if anything  goes wrong with his machine none of his work is disturbed and can be acessed.
Anyone care to enlighten me. I have tried to read up on it but it is confusing to me.
Thaanl you
Peter

I dont know much about the Chrome OS.

It is completely different to Windows, just like MAC and Linux is :wink:

That also means none of your Windows program will run on it though.

I'll be busy between my son's fervor for Google and Cloud and this new registry backup.
Thank you for that information and I am sticking with this and being polite to him.
