[14:03:28] matt []/Psi.generay I'm currently running Debian Squeeze on my Samsung Series 5 Chromebook, basically following the directions from the Chromium team themselves. I'm seeing what's practical on the Chromebook, and trying to script what I can for the install. It's not so bad. It still isn't as easy as a real laptop however.

[14:06:19] matt []/Psi.generay Apparently the Samsung Series 5 Chromebook doesn't boot from larger USB devices, meaning it wouldn't flash from the 40GB HDD I tried. Using a HD-SD card worked.

[21:18:48] matt []/Merch Samsung Series 5 Chromebook arrived today, my first impression was that it was surprisingly thin next to the 1st gen Apple iPad device--about the same thickness with a cover on the latter. It's about an inch wider, and two inches taller and fits in the messenger bag I've been using for the iPad device, but which is too small for work's MacBook Pro. With the colouring scheme and thickness, it looks like a larger version of my USB multi-card reader.

nb: The feet take a little effort to get up because they're glued in and you don't have a lot of room to maneuver--however I was able to get them out with just my finger nails. There is a screw under each, making seven total on the bottom.
