Really? I spell it out rather clearly a number of times throughout this thread.

I was under the impression that there was a point in time, at least initially, when Google apparently didn't want people to just download an ISO of the OS and install it on their own hardware; they'd rather have people buy Chromebooks with the OS preloaded (kinda like Apple goes it out its way to prevent people from downloading their x86-based OS and run it on non-Apple hardware).

I did not realize that this had changed (or was ever a thing to begin with). As per my last message, it does seem like they've relaxed the rules somewhat and you can download an ISO easily enough (I had never tried very hard), if you can find/trust the repositories for it.

I was just asking about that; I wasn't trying to "make a point".

Straw Poll

When building an application, when is the most important time to consider the User Experience?
They are the ones we write code for, right?
