If you're interested, Bodhi linux has a distro specifically for the new Haswell Chromebooks. Don't need crouton or ChrUbuntu. Lead developer baked in the tweaks that make the trackpad, sound, sleep, etc. work OOTB.

I was just making fun of religions with G-d.. Using "Bodhi" is disrespectful.

Going back to the stock HP Chromebook 14 setup. It's perfect for its intended purpose.

Remote desktop has been fantastic for running R on my "real" computer while working from my chromebook.

Glad it works.

I'm super annoyed though because it doesn't support persistent login on Linux. I managed to get it working but I don't know why it wouldn't do it out of the box. Even the dev who fixed it doesn't know why they didn't enable it.

This really is a great device, especially for $219. It does what it does very well. So much better than the Samsung one I had, not even in the same ballpark.
