Journey

Few years back I bought a Chromebook. My expectations from Chromebook were high. Just because it is Google backed(The Chrome OS) and also I personally think that future general computing will be replaced by cloud computing. Microsoft is going to launch the Windows X. Apple has launched the Apple Silicon, which is basically an ARM chip. These things are more Web inclined technologies and they are basically going to use more cloud based applications…
