How to Activate Linux on Chrome OS Laptop Chromebook

MyshortTips Chromebook Tutorial - Even though there is Linux, like Linux distributions in general, let's call it Ubuntu, Debian, Mint, Garuda, and many other Linux distros, even like the "Langit Ketujuh" Linux distribution from Indonesia for multimedia needs... especially for freelancers... .

There are lots of Linux distributions that you can choose from, and they are usually free, because Linux itself is free and open source.


Although Chrome OS is an operating system based on Gentoo Linux, which is a development project by Google with Google Chrome as the main graphical interface, this Chrome OS is limited to only running on certain hardware, which is manufactured by Google's manufacturing partner under the name Chromebook.


* Gentoo Linux, released on March 31, 2002 for version 1.0, originally named Enoch Linux and created by Daniel Robbins, is a distribution that can be optimized and has its own uniqueness because it can be customized for almost any type of application or use.

Extreme configuration and excellent support from fellow users and developers are some of Gentoo's strengths. Thanks to a technology called Portage, Gentoo Linux can be a secure server, development system, desktop professional, game system, "embedded" solution, or whatever we want. Because of Gentoo's almost limitless adaptability, we call Gentoo Linux a "MetaDistribution."


Then why does Linux have to activate Linux again? From what I understand, Gentoo Linux has a modular nature, which means it can even be added and ported to other distributions (Debian, Ubuntu, Mint, and other distros...). As you can see, the Chromebook can be activated in a Linux environment (distro).

Linux (Beta), also known as Crostini, is a feature that lets you develop software using your Chromebook. You can install Linux command line tools, code editors, and IDEs on your Chromebook. It can be used to write code, build applications, and much more. Learn more about Keywords.

Chromebooks, Chromeboxes, and Chromebases launched before 2019 that support Linux (Beta) are listed below. Unless otherwise specified, all devices launched in 2019 will support Linux (Beta).

But for the latest ChromeOS update, Linux Beta has no Beta anymore, but has become a Linux environment.


The Linux distribution on Chrome OS is in the form of a container/kind of virtual machine, so when you just open your chromebook/turn on your chromebook, then after you set foot in the Linux environment, the virtual machine will boot... hehe


So that it doesn't reduce the Chromebook's initial boot time, which is very fast.



Ok, let's go straight to the discussion how to Activate Linux on Chrome OS.

Oh yeah... BTW, here's Debian Bullseye 11, friends for Linux... so you can install various applications from APT Debian.... including you can install GIMP, INKSCAPE, LIBRE OFFICE, FIREFOX ESR, ZOOM, VLC, HANDBRAKE.
