I have finally managed to try CR after a couple failed attempts at installing. It is very unique, in a good way. Being able to use CR as a portable system is something worth consideration. Once running it is very smooth and easy to use. Aside from difficulty in getting setup, I do have reservations regarding the enterprise version but many others take this approach so its certainly not something exclusive to CR.

I have a laptop with the newer version of Nvidia's switchable graphics (there is no bios option to switch between the Intel graphics and the Nvidia graphics), and I have spent months trying to improve the video playback (without using Windows). Every single desktop environment I have tried (Gnome3, KDE, xfce MATE, Pantheon) and window manager (i3 with and without Compton) causes stuttery video playback. This is the only linux distro that I have found that can compete with Windows, when it comes to smooth, tear-free 60 fps video playback. One big issue with this distro, is that it doesn't give you installation options, so it installed over my Windows hard drive, rather than the second drive that I had intended to install it to. Also, I coudn't install chome extentions in guest mode, for some reason. Lastly, the touchpad configuration feels awful. Overall, its the best experience I have had with a linux distro.

Working in an education environment, I found this OS and realized we could get a few more years out of our aging Windows XP and 7 computers. We now have close to 300 ChromeReady machines deployed with another 650 Chrome devices, books and boxes. If you are in Education and would like to standardize easily, this is an easy sell to your administrative staff.

We are now on version 63
