Saw this reaction to #Google marketing running #Linux apps on #ChromeOS:

"So it does everything that Linux does, but you can also send all your personal data automatically to google.

Wow, what a value proposition!"



Google: "Unlike other operating systems, ChromeOS is built on open standards: the world wide web."
Me: "But what about the standards Linux, BSD, etc are built on: POSIX, X11, and FreeDesktop.Org?"
Google: *crickets*
Google: You can now run "Linux" apps on it.
Me: Well, that's a start...


@alcinnz @MatejLach I was waiting for too much long for Google to release possibility to run applications anywhere. You know, that dex code generally can be ran literally everywhere, not just on piece of phone.

Well, I've got fed up waiting 😞
