itworld.com: One of the tidbits author Jerri Ledford told me during my interview to get information for the Daily Tip entry Chrome Tips and Tricks for Better Browsing was that she felt Google's Chrome operating system would be on netbooks by Christmas.
blogs.techrepublic.com: Much like “The Boy Who Cried Wolf,” if you see the same claim made in every argument, time and time again, that claim starts to lose credibility. I don’t think there’s anywhere in modern life where this is more visible than in the Linux/Mac/Windows flame wars.

tuxradar.com: So you've been playing around with alternative OSes for a while and you reckon you've got this Linux thing mastered.
