I have been looking at Acer's Chrome Book, which is supposed to have a 320gig hd. Is there any way to install PCLinuxOS on, what by all accounts is the most popular sub-laptop computer on Amazon?
I have looked at it and it appears to be totally cloud based. Cloud is okay, but I am from the old school and want to be able to download items from the repository to my hd, not get an app and link to something somewhere else. The ad material makes it appear that Chromium OS is another flavor of Linux. That may be true, but it is a very odd and particular flavor. One that I can definitely do without.
Now that the rant is over, back to the original question, "Can one install PCLinuxOS on an Acer Chrome Book?" If so, are there any unusual hoops to jump through or do you merely put PCLinusOS on a jump drive and boot? (Assuming you can boot from a USB port on the Chrome Book, that is)
