Time to change this entire post to: “Switch to Dev or Canary channel. You're done.” Native Linux VMs & containers just landed for Samsung 3 and about 30 other budget Chromebooks. 🎉

To my buddies on the Chrome OS team, I have channel my best Seinfeld and send out a hearty: "Pretty, pretty good."

This is nuts. This dinky $150 notebook is running Chrome, nginx, Erlang, Node, Go, and because why not, MongoDB Enterprise 4 with Encrypted Storage Engine. 4GB RAM! /cc @paul_snively

I loved this article when it came out on HN in 2017. I've stored it ever since. Would you recommend any Chromebook 3 from Samsung?

Thanks. Samsung CB 3 is still a solid travel/burner choice. For daily driver, the current entry Pixelbook is a great price for the hardware. Either way, crostini is a game changer.

Wow. I need to buy a laptop (as my main computing device), and I'm seriously considering going for a Chrokebook. Do you use yours only for travel, or can it be your daily driver as well?

I dogfooded it as my daily driver for several weeks, but with a decent keyboard and monitor. For travel you can't beat the cost/weight/performance mix.

Kenn please don’t change that older post, I don’t think all existing (older) Chromebooks will fully support it will they?
