    This is actually inferior to what Microsoft have with their Linux Subsystem on Windows 10 which surprised me.

    the only things i would like to run would be konsole, libreoffice, gimp, inkscape, kcalc or gcalctool and klipper, some of those are already covered by andriod or there is equivalents to them, it is hard to justify the extra step to test this vm implementation

    Chrome – web/cloud apps
    Android – mobile/touch apps
    Linux – desktop/dev apps

    Cool for the future when they get this working as a seamless experience. ChromeOS could become the ultimate OS.

    Why would anyone want to do this? And then this: running Linux will wear out the onboard emmc memory which is only 16 or 32 gigiabytes in most cases.

    Great video!
    I agree and I hope the Chromebook makes gives us more local storage and faster storage too! Many (if not all) developers need fast storage. 😀

    When I saw Chrome OS for first time, I thought more towards web development. To some extent, it does serious things.

    Really want to see Steam or Steam in home streaming working on these Chromebooks, whether it be the full Linux client or the Android Steam Link app.

    Would be fun running Firefox on that thing lol. Are there any performance drawbacks for using Linux apps?

    Windows can do all these very seamlessly.
    Linux distros are so good if you want to run Linux programs.

    Great video. For those of us without a supported Chromebook a video on Crouton may be a good idea. After setting it all up, calling apps in the Crouton Chrome Extension is pretty powerful stuff.

    It's nice to see Linux living on so well even though it's being appropriated into ecosystems in which surveillance and total user non-freedom is the dominant reality.

    Hey Gary, even though I do not understand all of these things, your Gary explains videos are absolutely fascinating to me. I am learning new information each time I watch one of your videos. If Google brings out support for my Acer model cb 571, I think that I might even try it, just to experiment with Linux. Keep these great Gary explains coming!!

    Exactly! Storage! Personally, I would be immensely pleased with such a Chromebook like Asus Chromebook Flip C302CA-DH75-G, but with a 512 GB SSD. Maybe with a slightly bigger screen, like by 1 inch, but the main thing is the storage.

    I have an idea for a video; how is it that Windows 10 can be installed on basically any computer, dating back decades, but Android 8.1 can only be installed on new devices that specifically support it. And Android phones will only get updates for a few years, while Windows just keep going until the computer is totally unusable?

    I'm pretty sure I know the answers, but I would love to hear your thoughts on it. And also why Android hasn't decided to become more like Windows in that sense.

    Right, so it's sort of Windows on ARM.
    Microsoft spoke about virtualization too when it comes to running Win32 programs on Snapdragon processors.
    I'm not entirely sure I like running programs non-natively.

    Helpful video thx Gary. FYI I've been running VS Code on my i7 G8 ASUS Chromebox 3 using Developer channel for a couple of weeks now. Right now, to get going quickly, developers should choose Intel based 64-bit Chrome OS devices and install from the terminal. I've also been able to update from the terminal too but not from within VS Code as yet. A few hundred dollars to bring the Chromebox 3 up to 16GB OF RAM & with my dp + HDMI dual monitor set-up I'm ready to code web apps.

    Chromebook of yours is ARM right?

    Would have been good to test it on an X86 Chromebook.

    Steam+ Hollow Knight would be good.

    I have a question though , did Chromebooks have specific gpu drivers for that ecosystem or uses Mesa Linux drivers?
