Before now, running a conventional operating system like Linux on your Chromebook required the user to switch between two separate operating systems. François Beaufort brings some last-minute 2014 good news, he confirms that Chromebook owners will now be able to run Linux in a window on their notebooks by using an extension. This process a lot easier than the former, you start by setting your Chromebook in developer mode, download the Crouton Chrome extension, and then you type in a terminal command to get a version of Linux running in a window. At the moment, you can get Debian and Ubuntu Linux distribution to work with the Crouton Chrome extension. You can dust of your Chromebook now and give it a try.
