Can you install Linux on Chromebook

am looking to buy a laptop.Apple's out, because the price/meat ratio is about 3 times higher than competitors.so, that leaves Chromebook and normal Windows laptop.first question about Chromebook is, can i install full Linux? am not much interested in ChromeOS. Am gonna use this for dev, python ruby database, html, javascript, node.js etc.Can you install Linux on Chromebook?yes, but not the normal way.You have to go thru unsupported hackery process such as turn on developer mode, which adds 10 secs to boot time, then other hackery process to get going. Or, another option is booting up with Chrome OS and run Linux on top, again, not good.you can read about the complexities here:How to install Ubuntu on Acer's $199 C7 Chromebook: ChrUbuntu is kind of a mouthful, but helps you get your money's worth.2012-12-09 By Andrew Cunningham. @ http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2012/12/how-to-install-ubuntu-on-acers-199-c7-chromebook/How to Install Linux on a Chromebook and Unlock Its Full …
