Just curious. Why would you want to install any other OS on a Chromebook? Doesn't that defeat the purpose of the device? If you just want Ubuntu to run on a 16GB SSD and 2 GB RAM machine, why not a regular (less expensive) netbook?

@kobe yes I believe it works on the Samsung too. I haven't tried it personally, but I have read about other people doing it on the Samsung Chromebooks.

@cloudyone I still use ChromeOS as the primary OS. I installed Ubuntu so I could use this notebook for programming when traveling.

Oh, neat! I was wondering when a full-fledged Linux-y thing would pop up. There's a few Linux distros that focus on cloud computing, but I don't know how useful they'd be on a machine that already focuses on the cloud. :p
