    Why review a developer build when you know it's going to be buggy and throw comments based on a developer version

    So... Chrome OS (Developer) BETA is not ready for a budget tablet - is what the title should have been. ???

    Why are you reviewing a developer build? That's like complaining about a car's interior because they're still only working on the exterior.

    Hey Dieter, videos are getting better and better. Congrats. Do you think they're trying to run that multiplatform environment, to the point that I'd be able to answer calls or send sms on my Chrome OS tablet/laptop?

    Dieter is one of the best tech reviewers on YouTube right now. Always has a well thought out, nuanced review that reflects real world usage, but also sees how different aspects will apply to different users.

    I still don't understand why the Chrome OS exists, if we already have Android.
    Hopefully the next Fuchsia OS replace both Chrome and Android!

    If developers and consumers support UWP, windows 10 could be a best os for tablets. But the worst part people are hard to accept any change 🙄.

    Why Android tablets are gone?
    What other tablets (not windows tablets) can do that Android tablets can't?
    If we have a video for it that will be great. ☺️
