We have covered Google's Chromebook in a series of posts previously, including our story about questions to ask here and some other considerations here. But Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols has written an excellent take on ZDnet here about what you need to know before deploying any of the Chromebooks across your enterprise.
For example, you'll need your secret decoder ring to find how to activate its iffy VPN support, forget about hooking up to some of your Wi-Fi WPA2 networks for the time being, and opening a file can be vexing too. But hey, how about those Google Docs? And it boots as quick as a MacBook!
Perhaps some of this is just early days of trying to force a browser to do everything that a real OS should do, or perhaps all of the overhype that preceded the Chromebook in May is just getting a reality test. But until the basic utility software that corporations run on such as VPNs, remote control programs like Citrix Receiver, and wireless security is ironed out, Chrome is colorless for corporations currently.
