    The title of this article includes the text “ChromeOS”, which makes me think it’s talking about an operating system. However, you also have this line:

    “His Web site offers instructions on how to install the lighter Chromium build on Windows, Mac and Linux machines”

    Exactly how do you install an operating system on another operating system?

    Is this article confusing the ChromeOS(the operating system) and Chromium(the web browser)? If so, OS != web browser

    Some time before, I did need to buy a good house for my organization but I didn’t earn enough money and could not buy anything. Thank goodness my brother proposed to try to get the personal loans from reliable creditors. Thence, I acted so and used to be satisfied with my small business loan.

    I took my first mortgage loans when I was 32 and this aided my family very much. But, I need the sba loan as well.
