World’s First Accounting System on Chrome OS?

We’re claiming it …

For the geeks we ran through the Building Chrome OS guide (http://www.chromium.org/chromium-os/building-chromium-os using Ubuntu to do the work. If you follow the steps outlined it pretty much works as written. We then copied that onto a USB stick and ran it on a little Eee-PC. Some issues around networking were sorted out with a cable – couldn’t get the apps page to work either and logout seemed to be missing.

Otherwise a pretty slick experience. Next step is to change all the images to Xero logos and build our own OS 😉
