I would like to thank everyone for their constructive input to this thread.
I have installed Debian with the original chrome OS kernel to get a feel for the device.
must say that I
am surprised that more open source developers are not picking up
as I am impressed with it as an overall package. It is a smart looking,
that belies its low price point.
the right developer support it would be possible to run a
source system with the minor compromise of needing a small Wi-Fi
dongle. In the
last six months that this device has had Libreboot available for
it I have seen
nothing else in a modern laptop format that comes close to this,
nor do I know
of anything else likely to become available in the near future.
Paul, I suspect some of your plans for more development work
with the C201 would
be extremely helpful for me so I will eagerly await them as and
when you have
the time to spend on it. In the meantime, if there is any
guidance you can
provide about removing the blobs when building the chromium
kernel, that would
be much appreciated.
Once again thank you very much for everyone's input.
