We (Wayne Inc.) modify kernel, update device drivers and firmwares from upstream Chromium OS, however the HW compatibility is not as compatible as MS Windows since Linux/Chromium-OS kernel/firmware doesn’t support some devices perfectly and we also face difficulties to test a lot of devices.
We apologize to users about this issue and we will try our best to improve this.
- base: Pristine Chromium OS image that is similar to Chrome OS
- dev: Developer image that is similar to base with additional dev packages
- test: Similar to dev with additional test specific packages and can be easily used for automatic testing using scripts such as test_that, etc
