Before recent fuss over the new Google Chrome browser, I was looking at another new freebie that may give the average user a better idea of where the search giant is headed.

Why in god's name isn't Google Calendar offline-capable? That is the only app that REQUIRES offline capability, because you need 100% access to your data, or else the app is worthless.

Your calendar consists of your data. That data is unique to you, and there can be only one version of it. I suppose you could store your calendar data locally on the laptop, but then you lose access to it from other computers, and you also lose data security.

And for that matter, why is calendar data stored some proprietary file format? Why can't I use Outlook to open my Google Calendar data when I am offline?

If they fix these obvious flaws (no offline access to the app OR the data), then I will have a nearly perpetually backed up, nearly device-independent and universally accessible to my work tools.

I have been using this os through the different beta stages and it just gets better (maybe a few flaws in it) but overall very pleased.
This is certainly a savage contender against ubuntu and as they iron out the flaws i will become more popular like ubuntu.
I find it a more user friendly version of ubuntu , so if you have been putting up with the bsod for years and want something different then this will be the one to try.
Keep up the good work g os.
