If you have never heard of it, it a distro that installs Chrome OS on any machine. It is lightweight and simple to use. The downside is that it is dancing with the devil called Google. I read an article that schools are using this to revive old laptops that are past their prime instead of purchasing new Chromebooks for students.
This got me curious to try it out so I downloaded the image, installed it on a USB drive, then installed it on the old cranky Dell Dimension XPS M1330 (Core 2 Duo, 4 GB ram and leftover HD from another machine) shipped with Vista, then I had XPPro, and finally had 7 on it). I have installed Ubuntu, Mint, some others, and most recently Lubuntu on this machine to use for light web stuff including Pandora, Spotify, and Amazon Prime Music.
I wiped the drive and installed Cloudready tonight and I gotta say I am really impressed. This machine is snappier than it was when new and does I ask of it without a hitch.
Update - This install was completed using a USB adapter that connected to my wireless network at 5ghz. The same adapter worked out of the box with LUbuntu but at a slow connection rate.
