No way to crack Chrome OS

If you want safe surfing, go Linux: Linux triumphant: Chrome OS resists cracking attempts | ZDNet

I do most of my surfing in a Linux Mint virtual machine these days. This article confirms that I am on the right track.

I just put ChromeOS on a VM yesterday, as a matter of fact. It handles most everything that my grandkids surfed to. I may just have to find a way to get it installed on a separate partition for the days that they visit, and preserve my windows install....

What's wrong with the virtual installation. Does that not work well ??

The VM hardware settings aren't tweaked up, so graphics are slow, etc...

Haven't looked. I just wanted to see what the OS looked like and play around a little.

Also, I should mention that I'm currently using the free Oracle VM VirtualBox.

I used virtual box for many years but have now switched to VMware Player. With vBox I always had trouble with the network connections in the host. I find VMware Player easier to use and to manage.

I get excellent results - also in terms of performance. There is quasi no difference between the host performance and the guest performance. And for the internet, I use Mint most of the time because it is safer and faster. Even when I run from and external USB3 attached disk the performance impact is very minimal. But, of course, all my system disks are SSDs. I run Linux Mint, Linux Zorin, Ubuntu and Windows 8 that way.

Is using Xp mode in Windows 7 Pro considered surfing in a VM?

Knew it wouldn't last long, nothing is unhackable. People will always find a way always! I wouldn't be suprised if they get fully into it.
