I'm trying to do some development on my Chromebook. Until I get a new apartment and internet, I also won't be self-hosting or running my Raspberry Pi's. I've been able to run Python/Pelican after installing Chromebew and I'm using sdf.org free hosting for my site. I'm definitely going to have to upgrade and pay for sdf! Their service has helped me out a few times. Also, I'd like to be able to use rsync!
I can't do everything I want with Chromebrew, but it's coming along. I think it just recently started working on ARM Chromebooks, so perhaps there will be more use for it soon. One thing I'd like to be able to do is to use adb and fastboot without having to install crouton.
