I am working for a school who is moving over to Google Apps.
We have some older PCs that are currently running windows.
We have also bought some chrome books.
We would like the PCs to run in a similar way to the Chromebooks.
I have tried Chromium OS, in particular this package. http://chromeos.hexxeh.net/lime.php
However I found it wouldnt boot on some of the older PCs that I would want to use it for. In fact it only seemed to boot on my nearly new HP Probook.
I am booting from a USB drive to test but I would want a proper installation on the hard drive as the final set up.
I am looking at Chrome OS Linux as an alternative too. I ideally I want these device to be fixed in a default state so the users gets the same experience over time. I want either the user to be completely unable to make any changes or any changes are flushed out after a reboot. I gave used Faronics Deep Freeze in Windows.................so
mething similar would be good.
I have a little experience with linux but get stuck very easily. Most of my experience with linux came from experimenting with LTSP last year
Does anyone have any suggestions of how best to achieve this.
