I joined this forum yesterday. I downloaded the chromium flow USB image. I am using Ubuntu 10.04 on my HP compaq laptop with Win 7 on virtualbox. I faced problems in using ImageWriter on Ubuntu to make a USB stick. ImageWriter hangs or restarts my Ubuntu after 50% of writing. Later I used Win32DiskImager on my Win 7 installation and was done.
Now coming to the Netbook part, I use MSI Wind U100 netbook. I m running Chromium through my USB (not yet installed on hard disk). I was surprised to see the following:
1) My Realtek wifi works
2) Audio works (not to the full sound)
I tested some of the HTML5 components (not rigorously) but following are the analysis:
1) Video don't work
2) Geolocation is not supported
3) WebGL is not supported
rest are fine
I have a HSDPA modem which will I try tomorrow. Still lot more usage testing need to be done, will be posted as and when done.
