Re: [OOL] PC with Linux OS

said by xirian:

For a senior I think even chrome os would work well if it wasn't for the fact it only comes on laptops. If she is currently just using msn tv then the chrome browser with common pages/webmail on the screen when you open it / load a new tab would probably work fine.

That's actually not a bad idea and is platform agnostic. If the OP could create a local "startup" page with her most used websites on it using large buttons, then have the browser automatically open when the computer starts up, it'll be pretty close to the MSN TV.

The only challenge would be finding sites that look good and function well on a TV. Increasing the default font size should help.

Actually I just looked in the chrome options and I see theres a "minimum font size" option.

That along with chrome's start page letting you pin sites as "apps" could work well, as long as she can figure out how to open chrome if it needs to be reopened (Giant desktop icon renamed to 'CLICK FOR INTERNET"?).
