You can now run Linux apps on Chrome OS

I’m interested in this because Chromebooks are cheap and pretty light. The idea that I could use it for actual programs, rather than just as a big browser, is interesting. Especially if it happens natively. I know there’s Crouton, but it always seemed risky to buy a machine and potentially break it.

Of course, as we learned earlier this week, I’m still pretty committed to my Thinkpad.
