Chromebooks Now Support Linux for Coding
Google is making it possible for developers to code on Chromebooks
By supporting Linux, developers will be able to create, test and run Android and web app for phones, tablets and laptops all on one Chromebook. They will be able to run popular editors, code in their favorite language and launch projects to Google Cloud with the command-line.
Linux runs inside a virtual machine that was designed specifically for Chromebooks. Google says that the virtual machine starta in seconds and integratea completely with Chromebook features. Linux apps can start with a click of an icon, windows can be moved around, and files can be opened directly from apps.
A preview of the new tool will be released on Google Pixelbook soon.
