Hello dear reader(s)!
Today where I am, it is the last day of January. You’d think with it being the last day, that the major January deaths this year would be over, but it looks like January felt like taking one more victim. That victim, is my Chrome OS on my Chromebook. The good news? My Chromebook stores most of its crap in the cloud, so the wiping of the hard drive will be no big deal. The bad news? My computer will be down for a bit and I have to type this on my phone. It also means that there could be an issue with the computer itself. There was an update last night though, so I’m not sure.
At any rate, I am deeply saddened by this loss. Chrome OS was a very kind and generous OS for many years, and gave lovingly to the world of computing and the community. Chrome OS leaves behind a Josh, and a blog-type-thing. The family asks that you respect their privacy in this understandably difficult time.
In lieu of flowers, you can make a donation on behalf of Chrome OS to its favorite charity…me. Just contact me for details.
Today we remember and celebrate the life of Chrome OS. It would want us to keep living in its absence.
Chrome OS, rest in peace. Whenever I bought the thing-2016.
