    "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]

    Want to know what kernel you have? check here. -[link]

    "8 more ChromeOS devices to get Linux apps support soon"

    "A handful of devices from 2015, including that year’s Chromebook Pixel, were stuck in an awkward place, being too outdated for Linux apps to be easily possible and being too new to be ignored completely. Last August, the Chromium team said that the fate of these devices was still “undecided,” which is why they’re not explicitly mentioned in Chromium documentation.

    In the intervening months, Google has been hard at work on a project called “kernelnext,” which seems poised to update the Linux kernel of certain devices, starting with the 2015 Chromebook Pixel (aka Samus), from version 3.14 to 4.14. There are actually eight other Chrome OS devices built on the same Broadwell generation Intel processors found in the 2015 Chromebook Pixel, all of which are also being tested with “kernelnext.” "


    TL;DR
    Acer Chromebase 24 – Buddy
    Acer C670 Chromebook 11 – Paine
    Acer Chromebook 15 – Yuna
    Acer Chromebox CXI2 – Rikku
    ASUS Chromebox CN62 – Guado
    Dell Chromebook 13 7310 – Lulu
    Lenovo ThinkCenter Chromebox – Tidus
    Toshiba Chromebook 2 (2015 Edition) – Gandof
