Ubuntu running on a Chrome CR-48 notebook [video]

Google’s Chrome OS notebook, the not-so-snappily titled CR-48, has been demoed running Ubuntu Desktop edition.

The procedure for getting Ubuntu up and running on the device is by no means as simple you’d think, requiring the use of another Linux machine on hand ‘with chroot set up for Chromium OS development.’

Check out the video below to see it in action, but for the laborious steps required to get Ubuntu running on the hack-friendly device see this link.
