This is one of many many many reasons why I have FossaPup64 9.5 (AKA Puppy Linux 9.5) as my #1 ranked Linux Distro on the Karmi’s Top
10 5 Linux Distros page.
I had been looking for a name for the new Samsung Chromebook Plus V2 XE521QAB ‘n when Puppy Linux started booting up on that Chromebook one came upon me – ‘Sam‘ (short for Samantha).
I’m worn out…have been at it since ‘Sam‘ arrived on 6/14/2021, but finally having success at getting a real Linux Distro on one of these two new Chromebooks makes it all worth it!!!!!!!
That’s GParted on Puppy Linux showing that Samsung Chromebook Plus V2 XE521QAB 32GB eMMC storage drive. Oh, Puppy Linux is on a separate 32GB SanDisk USB drive.
That’s System Information from Puppy Linux showing the weak Intel® Celeron® Processor 3965Y ‘n 4 GB LPDDR3 Memory at 1866MHz that came with the Chromebook – plus – a red highlight showing the sharp 1920 x 1200 resolution on the 12.2″ touchscreen display.
I tried a Fedora Linux USB, but it wasn’t booting for some reason, and I am just too tired to do anymore tests tonight.
None of this interferes with wid Chrome OS – Puppy Linux is booting from a USB-C port.
$299.99 + $14.58 shipping & no tax for a new Samsung 12.2″ Chromebook Plus V2 4GB 32GB XE521QAB-K01 New Sealed Stylus Pen that is a laptop, tablet, and sketchbook all combined.
Will be my Linux laptop before long, I suspect, especially if I can get one of the RHEL Fulltime Linux Root User Distros on it. 😉
Touchscreen works wid Puppy Linux…alright!
LINUX IS LIKE A BOX OF CHOCOLATES – you never know what you’re gonna get!
