    Wow! This is awesome, I thought Chromebooks are for students and non-techy laptop users only. So cool!

    localhost doesn’t work. If I try accessing through the IP address it takes me to the apache Debian default page which I can’t change because I don’t have access to root.

    The idea of having one device and do all the development tasks is very convenient for person like me…I need to connect my phone each time I need to debug any app, the port on my device is a bit loose and that's annoying for me….but My biggest problem is that there is no official iso image of chrome os so that anyone can download and install.

    As I cannot use linux apps on my HP Chromebook 13 G1 (which will anyway get updates until 2023) : it's the most limited developement computer ever.

    I'm glad Google is implementing tools for developers on ChromeOS. It was really missing out on a huge part of the market because of how limited it was previously.

    i want to build React-Native Android and IOS apps with VSC using my Samsung Chromebook that supports Android apps. Will i need Linux? What's the best Chomebook and Chromebox for me right now April 2020? Any chrome tablet i can use like a Chromebox with a 32 inch monitor and develop on?

    the samsung chromebook pro which is in the opening slide with all the other devices at 0:44 doesn't support linux mode in chromeos. Apparently no skylake devices are supported.

    All you really need for web development is a text editor to write code in. Create a new file, write <html><body>Hello world</body></html> save as index.htm, then open it in a browser.

    This is hilarious. What they managed to do was, to take a browser which could run INSIDE LINUX, and turned it into a browser that can run Linux INSIDE THE BROWSER. Well done Google, well done.

    Hi,
    I've considered buying Chromebooks with Chrome OS as a default machine for all the company. Also, try the Linux + VScode to see if would work for the Dev team.
    The problem: you don't sell Pixelbook Go in Spain 🙁

    I had an issue with the editor of visual studio code under chrome os, but unfortunately chrome os is not supported by VSC, so my issue got closed and my editor problem remains.

    Eh. My laptop + WSL 2 + X410 fits all my needs. Would like a 10" high-end ChromeOS tablet, but that'll never happen. iPad Pro or Surface Go it is.

    Well that's great!
    Being able to use Linux on Chrome OS has advantages over using a standalone Linux machine.Its nice to see Linux developement making progress on Chromebooks.

    Development on chromeos is laughable if you do coding on any language that isn't English. You can't switch Input Methods under Crostini.

    See Issue 826614 in chromium: Input Method support / integration with Linux app

    Just add to this capability list Orion Web IDE from Google Cloud Shell and you have a full stack of tools for huge Web projects which involve a large team.

    This is not WEB DEVELOPMENT ON CHROME OS. This is WEB DEVELOPMENT ON LINUX ON CHROME OS
    Ergo, side-load Ubuntu.

    Enough!!
    The main reason why I'm on Chrome OS is the cloud factor itself. What happens if I throw my Chromebook in the ocean, thought that was the point. Why don't I just get a Linux machine.
    I was hoping for something really on the web, other than this Linux hack thingy you guys have been pushing on Chrome OS for months.
