Bjorn and all,

This sounds very interesting, and I'd like to test it out. I don't know
much about the Chrome OS and what it can do, but I am evaluating a
Chromebook with an HDMI output Jack that I can test before we buy a
Chromebox or other media player. Is this something an old Apple fanboy
could figure out?  :)

Bryan
