    "Chrome Unboxed tried the feature on Monday using the Canary Channel of Chrome OS but I just tested in on the Dev Channel and it worked perfectly. It’s likely this feature will arrive in version 69 of the Chrome OS Stable Channel, pending any bugs or issues as the code progresses through the Dev and Beta channels." -about chromebooks.

    With such functionality, Google may beat MS in their own field in a couple of years. \=

    A little update on this. It seems chromebook linux support will be eventually coming to chromebooks, except for models with 3.14 kernel or older. -[article]

    The bummer on this is that includes the 2015 Google Pixel, and Dell 7310 which are both top-tier devices. The Pixel was Google's flagship killer before the Pixelbook was released, and the 7310 with its mag-alloy frame, upgradable m.2 ssd, carbon fiber lid, core i3/5 and touchscreen options.

    There may be hope though for the 2015 Pixel and Dell as an thread was found stating they are considering adding support for those 2 devices. -[article]

    Another Update!

    According to 9to5google.com, the chromium repos have posted a list of Chromebooks that will never get Linux app support.

    The great news is that the Dell 7310 (lulu), and Google Pixel 2015 (samus) will be getting Linux support. (along with the Samsung Plus v1 (kevin), and Pro (caroline)!

    Most notably, the 2013 OG Google Chromebook Pixel (link), will not be getting Linux support.
