That is interesting, but I think it results in another ChromeOS sale
and looks like you're always running under it, similar to how one can
shoehorn a GNU/Linux environment onto a kindle keyboard.

I am not sure whether that is better or worse than buying an Android
tablet, liberating it as much as possible, installing one of the
GNU/Linux subsystems and pairing it with bluetooth keyboard/mouse. Has
anyone any thoughts on this?
