Google Chrome OS Support Forums Launched!
The forums are an early preparation to the expected release of Google’s upcoming Operating system. It is befitting that Chrome OS Site which is the largest Chrome OS Specific Website on the internet decided to be the first to offer a robust user driven support community.
The forums are also targeted at those using Hexxeh’s Chrome OS distro’s such as Hexxeh’s new Chrome OS Zero, Chrome OS Cherry and many other distributions. Though the forums are not officially endorsed by Hexxeh himself, the founders feel that if anything, a user driven support system will benefit the distro immensely. This comes as a welcome relief; as we all know, since the release of Chrome OS source code (Chromium OS) only feeble attempts have been made to create a strong support community for developers and early adopters alike.
ChromiumOS Zero for example (the latest Hexxeh release) is handicapped by meager support offered by the developer. But it is worthy to note that Hexxeh’s work has been a shining light to what Chromium developers can do if they just put time and passion into their work. Nevertheless the lack of a single community for issue resolving, troubleshooting and other user driven support hinder the continued success of the project. All this becomes odd when one considers that the most paramount success in any Beta testing is a user driven feedback system.
