Getting to Know the Chromebook Computer Operating System Named Chrome OS

This year, it seems Chrome OS it’s starting to rise in prestige in Indonesia, hmmmm after the news about Chromebook up 🙂 for education, to support learning in schools, to become an operating system that “maybe” can allow students to focus more on learning and not be distracted by gaming, even though that’s actually true, it’s up to each individual and how the environment is.

Even though it’s actually been from 2017 it’s about Chrome OS, Chromebook, some have also discussed a lot… but the demand for it has dropped… but now it seems to be starting to change, especially after the Google Play Store application, which incidentally is for Android, can also be installed a few (not sure all can be installed). The possibility if this continues to be developed and many android applications can run also on Chrome OS, this must be very interesting.

What is Chrome OS

Chrome OS itself is an operating system based on Gentoo Linux developed by Google and was released around June 15, 2011. This operating system uses Google Chrome as its main graphical user interface. Unlike others, Chrome

OS only runs on certain hardware from Google’s manufacturing partners under the name Chromebook

Strengths and weaknesses

Chrome OS with Chromebook as a hardware device, it also has advantages in terms of smooth system performance and has a short boot time.

It’s just that there are drawbacks for now, especially for the device, which is called Chromebookbecause:

  1. We can’t be free to install and uninstall apps from outside or third parties like our computers in general ^_^ , where you just have to click 2x and you’re done… but it’s also possible because it’s based on Linux, if you can find “Terminal
    chances are you will be able to install software that supports linux, although there is no guarantee you can, but I’ve seen, to install Inkscapechromebook can go through Terminal and use sudo as usual.
  2. The storage offered by chromebook devices currently on the market, most of them still have small internal storage…and eMMC, so installing applications is limited, hmmm


    for file storage, you can add external storage via a card reader slot.. hehe, I don’t know if this is the same as the one on the cellphone and can be installed continuously.. 🙂 just try it…

  3. For gaming, it doesn’t seem like this is the realm… even if you want to install some games that can be run on Android via Playstore which can now be used in Chromebooksuch as Angry Bird, Mobile Legend… which incidentally is a game that is not light… but can run on ChromeOS, but still bro… not suitable… , I don’t know what it will be like in the future, but if this starts a lot If you are interested, it is possible that the specifications of the device will also be improved this time huh… hehe
  4. To run core applications (related to Cloud
    ) it does need an internet connection, bro… although this is also the same as a laptop in general… it can be run also in Offline…

Betewe Di Chromebookyou can open, edit, download, and convert various Microsoft® Office files, such as Word, PowerPoint, or Excel files even though they already have built-in facilities…

Chromebooks for Education

Another plus, it should be a laptop Chromebook it’s really cheap, so it’s affordable for all levels of education.. because search after search, chromebooks have started to rise in searches, right since the announcement Chromebook for the world of education.

From the sources I got… there are functions that support the world of education….

From the sources I got, in total there are 5 main functions obtained from Chromebooks that I quoted from “” this is the source … you can read for yourself for the detailed length, but here I only quote it,

  • Function 1Chromebooks can run well with Google Workspace for Education, where some of the tools in it include, Google Docs for document processing, Google Sheets for table processing, Google Slides for presentation processing, and Google Drive for Cloud Computing storage.
  • Function 2. Can run Magisto
    Video Editor
    and Soundtrap for Education as a supporter of learning content creation.
  • Function 3. Can operate software tinkercad which is a free tool for students to create and design applications in 3 dimensions for the purposes of science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics.
  • Function 4. Can run software equatlo i.e. extensions for students to prepare functions into documents for further mathematics learning
  • Function 5. Can run software Seesaw for teachers to create activities to share with students, which capture teachers’ work in a portfolio that parents can also view.

So, what about Chromebooks for business?

Yes… why not…

Especially if you are a Blogger who need a device that is comfortable to carry everywhere… 🙂

Wow… bro, this is right for you…

Moreover, most of them are in the Google ecosystem….

Isn’t blogger also part of the Google ecosystem…?
