Watch Desktop Linux Apps (like GIMP) Running on Chrome OS [Video]

Linux fans enthusiastic about Google’s effort to bring desktop Linux apps on Chrome OS owe to themselves to watch the following video.

In it, technology YouTuber Lon Seidman demos the current state of the Crostini project (‘Crostini’ is the codename for the “run desktop and CLI Linux apps on Chrome OS” feature we keep gushing about) on both an Intel Chromebox and an ARM-based Chromebook. The Chrome OS Linux feature (aka ‘Crostini) creates a sandboxed Linux container inside of Chrome OS.

This latter demo, of ARM support, is of particular interest.

Google recently rolled out experimental Crostini support to a further 18 Chromebooks, including some older models. The only real limiting factor seems to the kernel support, with devices running on older Intel processors left out of the fold.
