The first thing I normally do when I take a new computer (desktop or laptop) out of its box is stick a Linux disc in its drive and wipe all traces of window$ off of it, replacing it with Linux.

THIS time, I'm already getting Linux. Even though I'm always [always...always... ] yakking about *buntu and how great it's been for me, I'm not averse to using/trying other distros [think my now-dead Bodhi laptop, or Fedora and several other distros I've tried again over the last couple years, just for the fun of it]. If this Chromebook allows me to do everything I'd normally do, and I can make it look how I like, I might leave it alone.

Or not.

You know that curiosity thing with me.
