Hi!

Isn't the whole idéa with Chrome OS that you don't have anything other than the web browser installed on the machine?

Java isn't working yet (according to this quite old article: http://www.networkworld.com/news/2010/121310-google-chrome-java.html) but if/when it does I suppose it wouldn't be a problem to start a Java app.

OpenOffice is experimenting with an online version, but I haven't seen anything usable yet.

Regards, Tobias
