I really like this distro. Not only is the native crostini experimental, they threw in Virtualbox on the home edition if you rather. Clean, quick - all the chrome OS goodness with a portal to greatness for experienced users.

Great distro!
I am really happy that I have found this one.
I used to install on a old notebook that my father uses to watch netflix and youtube videos. Work great!
No virus, no complications, fast, light easy.

I also have a chromebook and just installed CR on it. I have switched from ChromeOS to CR because CR ships with flatpak. Now I have some apps and the light and clean chromeos interface.

Another great thing is that with CR I was able to enable Crostini ( something that chromium has already announced that wont support for my chromebook). It works, not perfect but it a good start and I am looking forward for the new versions.

Thanks for the great work guys!

I have finally managed to try CR after a couple failed attempts at installing. It is very unique, in a good way. Being able to use CR as a portable system is something worth consideration. Once running it is very smooth and easy to use. Aside from difficulty in getting setup, I do have reservations regarding the enterprise version but many others take this approach so its certainly not something exclusive to CR.
