Comment Chromebook Pixel (LS) (Score 1) 237

If you feel comfortable with istalling Linux yourself, get a Chromebook Pixel and slap Linux onto it. Amazing hardware, great design and perfect compatibility with Linux, since ChromeOS is also based on Linux.

You can very easily run ChromeOS and Linux at the same time, you can use ChromeOS for the basic stuff and even run Linux in a window inside ChromeOS or you can wipe the Pixel clean and go Linux-only (that requires some more fiddling though).

But the most pointed comment came from someone labeled only as dk. "You all continue to underestimate the dramatic spillover effect this poor developer experience has had and will continue to have on your other products and services. Let me drive this point home. I am a front-end programmer and a co-founder of a start-up. I can tell you categorically that my team won't download and play with Silverlight ... won't build a Live widget ... won't consider any Microsoft search or ad products in the future."
