With Chrome OS only supporting specific hardware configurations, the average user will not be able to install it without first relying on third-party developers creating/adding the required drivers and software interfaces. And without the ability to install programs like you can on the average operating system, it's only sufficient for those who rely solely on cloud-based computing; all others will have to manage a dual-boot setup or purchase multiple computers, defeating the purpose of having a bare-bones OS. And since it's a free download, Newegg will not be selling the OS, so its availability does not benefit such retailers in any way.
