i knew that the material design was coming. i thought the old file manager was fine. the new design doesn't suit the rest of the OS.

Just beautiful. Material Design just added the missing piece to this amazing OS... I hope the rest of the OS will get the same design too. This is just the perfect UI.
Once again, good job guys :)

people aren't going to take chromeOs seriously with an immature looking design.

I am not trying to be negative, but I absolutely hate the new "Start menu". I do not like how it resides in the center of the screen now instead of by the taskbar. The format of it just doesn't make much sense either. I am sure I will learn to use it more effectively in the future, but until then I just am not going to enjoy chrome OS anymore. Please take my feedback and apply it. If you do not, however, I understand.

I have the Acer 720 for a year now. Why is it excluded from this update?

I hope the update for the excluded devices will come soon. I also have the Acer C720.

@all

This is actually a fairly common occurrence, and the C720 has been left out of it before too.

Rest assured, the updates will be coming soon as soon as the issue preventing their release is fixed.

I hope Chrome OS gains more Material Design. It really does look nice.

"The ability to pin your favorite apps to their shelf"

Eh? I thought this feature had existed for quite a while.

There's a flag you can turn off to disable the new app launcher.
