Anytime something is offered for free on the Internet there is a rush for people to sign up and a feeling of elation... followed shortly by the feeling that you have a snowballs chance in hell of actually getting one. That's not the case with the Google CR-48 Netbook (http://www.chromeosforums.net/). Besides the fact that they are making 60,000 of the things (http://www.chromeosforums.net/forum/chrome-os-news/11-so-just-how-many-cr-48s-have-been-made-60-000-a.html) in their initial run - they seem to be doing a great job at selecting random joes - not just dev's to receive the device.

This makes a lot of sense though as the operating system needs to work for random joe's and non-programmers alike so why not get it out there to a selection of both.

On the ChromeOSforums.net site alone we've seen at least 5 unrelated individuals receive the laptop in the first couple of days. We've got welcome threads of these people here (http://www.chromeosforums.net/forum/new-member-introduction-site-assistance/30-new-forum-new-people.html), here (http://www.chromeosforums.net/forum/new-member-introduction-site-assistance/32-surprise-surprise.html), here (http://www.chromeosforums.net/forum/new-member-introduction-site-assistance/26-jush-cregger.html), here (http://www.chromeosforums.net/forum/chrome-os-news/5-google-announces-cr-48-chrome-os-netbook-3.html) and even some videos here (http://www.youtube.com/user/elijahkepley).

So keep your chin up, you've got a good chance at getting one. I'm not going to say that by being an active member at the Chrome OS Forums (http://www.chromeosforums.net) will increase your chances at one -- but seeing our member success rate -- it can't hurt!

Oh man...I'm a gadget junkie, so I am hoping I get one. Anything else I need to do besides registering for the forum?

Yes, you have to register with Google for the pilot program!

OK I went & registered @ Chrome OS, "is this all I need to do to to enter to win the netbook?"
Only wonder I have is when Chrome OS & Android will 'bump heads'.
Thanks.

Just got one delivered from UPS, on monday. It came very discretely, simple brown box. It does what it advertises, internet browsing.
