    THANK YOU for this video. I have a question – can the virtual machine container (in this case, Linux) use the USB ports?

    If you can look at the chromebook line of all different manufacturers, i feel like Google dictates how hardware is like, not because consistency, but dictatorship. Dictatorship here is limited storage and upgrade ability. Pixelbook and other "premium" chromebook costs around $1000, and i am certain you can get a superior pc or macbook. And why does not google publicly license out their chromeOS? Because they know for sure people will ditch those official chromebooks, and try to install it into more powerful PC, which is cheaper and better. Hackintosh is a good example, OS image is originally from Apple, but we only need community tweaks to make it work on own hardware.

    Is there a real way to completely install a pure version of Linux? Selecting any kind of distros?

    Are all Google devs avid League of Legends players? Because there's a surprising amount of LoL names I saw in this video.

    The best thing is that again Linux get support from a huge player. Especially the GTK part (the recommended GUI pick by google) needs a huge support. Maybe Linux on the Desktop isn't dead. With Mac becoming unaffordable and Windows going 100% into the cloud Linux is our only hope.

    Why is the bezel on the Asus so huge? Looks like a notebook from 2012. It could be smaller with thinner bezel or have a larger display housed in the same case.

    Regarding Linux on ChromeOS: First they create the energy-efficient ChromeOS, then they shorten battery runtime with Linux. Hmmm …

    So.. How about ditching Chrome OS all together and just installing linux as the only OS?

    Regarding the powerwash when changing builds on Chrome OS: When changing from Beta to Dev or Stable to Dev, you will not be asked to powerwash. Only when reverting from Dev builds to another build will you be forced to powerwash.

    First Android apps, now Linux, next is possibly windows apps, I feel like chrome devices are about to start getting expensive.

    I use chromebrew to install anaconda for python and jupyter notebook use but I can't run pygame because it can't detect the graphics setup (I'm not a linux person). So, I hope I can do this when it supports linux natively.

    This is amazing! Android Apps + Linux Terminal with GUI support and still maintaining decent performance, wow. MS Windows will have a serious competition soon.

    Lon, will we be able to install a Linux distribution this way or just apps? Currently I use crouton to dual-boot between ChromeOS and Ubuntu on my chromeboxes and chromebooks and Ubuntu is super fast. However, this is a much cleaner installation approach if it could also be used for Linux distributions. Great video….Thanks 🙂
