Can we have one of these going? I hate having to be forced to use this shitty spyware for school. It is so janky and broken and is missing several features that I usually take for granted in a computer Also the person who thought shoehorning Grammarly every time I open up CIAhrome deserves to be hung, drawn, and quartered (in minecraft)

I remember using crouton on refurbished ARM chromebook. It was not the best possible linux experience but battery life and portability made it pretty interesting daily driver.

Not sure if you zoomers are allowed to do such thing on school property tho

I think they made all chrome books Linux compatible out of the box so you can just do a full Linux install which would be nice considering the battery life of those things.

I could compile kernel from google's tree and use debian's ARM userland but I could not figure out how to enable modesetting with mali. I know some archfags managed to do it but I could not replicate it.

wonder how atom based chromebooks work

I have literally never used a google product in my life. Yeah, i've used their apps and their web browsers before, but, I refuse to touch anything hardware related to that fucking evil company. Fuck that.

Just format them NIGGA

They made them Linux compatible because ChromeOS is based on Gentoo.

idk, i kinda like it

been using an acer spin 713 10th gen intel 8gb ram ssd variant because there was a flash deal and i got it for super cheap
basically just wanted something to to lay down in bed with and shitpoast so I said, why not

thing is fast and smooth
I just use it to surf the web and occasionally jot down notes and record audio thoughts

Bluetooth on ChromeOS was a shitshow, that is until the most recent update, and especially since I moved to the beta update channel… idk time will tell

it's cool you get to use android apps on them

I know it's BORG tier, but its kinda reassuring to be in the midst of the GOOGpanopticon – there's always someone listening, there's always someone there. It's nice to know everything I'm doing is being recorded and that they care

besides you can create a google account with a puppet throw away account, you dont even need a mobile number, so all things considered this isn't a deal breaker

i cant think of a non evil fucking company when it comes to the regular OEMs that come to mind

all the linux-marketed hardware companies like system76, purism, linuxmint make shit that's too expensive
maybe it's worth it to save up, but i'm apprehensive

Just put Linux on it. Actually loved my 2-in-1 convertible Chromebook after that, with gnome on it and a nice screen, the ultimate consoom machine.

You can install leenukes on chromebooks now.

 No.11625

it pisses me off how many otherwise perfectly appealing X86 netbook type devices at a reasonable price point are only available with chromeOS, with no way to 100% strip it out and use it as a regular machine like you can or at least could before UEFI let some OEMs be cunts with Windows devices.
