CR-48 Not Cutting the Mustard? Install Win7 or OS X!

The reviews of Google’s Chrome OS have thus far been lukewarm at best, and tepid at worst – suffice it to say, no one really has strong feelings one way or the other. It’s doubtlessly cool, but most seem to agree that the majority of the public just isn’t ready to switch to computing on a cloud just yet.

So now you’re sitting there with your CR-48, unsure of what to do. Why not install another operating system? Users at the Something Awful forums have figured it out, installing Windows 7 and OS X with little ease – assuming of course that you file removing the CR-48’s finicky bottom panel in order to properly flash the BIOS under ‘ease’.

And even then, as this video shows, it’s not perfect – OS X on anything but a Mac rarely is – but hey, at least you’re not in the cloud.
