    Excellent intro to Crostini!
    Might need to add a Boolean field into the Chromebook Comparison page : "Supports Linux".

    Would be interesting if you could install handbrake and rip a DVD or play a DVD or CD from a chromebook using Linux software. You would probably need a external optical drive.

    O hai, it would be great to find the easiest way to add fonts that Inkscape and Gimp can see. Also, installing Atom editor would be nice.

    "Downloaded from the Internet" not really a great idea. Stick with labelled public domain or licensed sources. Just a word to the wise. Nice video walkthrough, btw.
