Announcing a new site in BETA - ChromeOSQuestions.org
 
Please welcome ChromeOSQuestions.org to The Questions Network family of sites. ChromeOSQuestions.org is for the discussion of all topics relating to Chrome OS and Chrome OS devices.

Note that if you have an account here at LQ, you already have an CQ account. The CQ site is running the next generation platform that will power LQ at some point in the future, so we're very interested in feedback and comments. If you have a suggestion or feedback, visit http://www.chromeosquestions.org/thr...SQuestions-org and let us know. If the feedback relates to LQ in any way, feel free to post in this thread.

Thank you.

A definition might be the logical way to get started.
I use "Chromium" as a browser.
What is the difference between "Chromium" and "Chrome OS".
Thank you.

Chromium (and Chrome) is a browser, while Chromium OS (and Chrome OS) is a Linux-based operating system designed by Google to work exclusively with web applications.

The difference between Chromium OS and Chrome OS is explained here: http://www.chromium.org/chromium-os/chromium-os-faq

Quote:

What's the difference between Chromium OS and Google Chrome OS?

Google Chrome OS is to Chromium OS what Google Chrome browser is to Chromium.

* Chromium OS is the open source project, used primarily by developers, with code that is available for anyone to checkout, modify, and build.
* Google Chrome OS is the Google product that OEMs ship on Chromebooks for general consumer use.

Google must like "Chrome" better than "Gold".
A more distinguishable name would be more appropriate.

Just wanted to comment that I strongly prefer the visual appearance of the platform we have here at LQ. Very strongly. I cannot see a single thing I like better in the newer platform. I would hate to see what we have here change to that one.

Thanks for all your hard work. This is my favorite place on the Internet. And I like the face it has now. :)

I'm with BloomingNutria about the appearance; it's well laid-out, and LOTS of us are used to it.

Thanks for the feedback. It's inevitable that LQ will move to the new platform. The current code base has served us well but is showing its age and will not allow us to move forward with some of the features and additions we'd like to implement. That said, if there are specific aspects of the current visual appearance that members think are significantly better in the old design, we'll certainly attempt to work them into the new design. The move to a new platform isn't something we take lightly and is something we'll be asking for feedback at every step along the way.
