I have a convertible touchscreen Chromebook (Acer R11) and this is my pipe dream. I did a mock-up of a ChromeOS login screen, with a pull down menu to select one of the following: Chrome OS or Android or Linux. I've been doing the Crouton/xfce4/xiwi /trusty thing and I sense we're probably moving towards getting to run Android in a Chrome tab, but I wouldn't mind just logging into each OS separately. Choose Android and then log in and it starts the ART (Android Runtime) for Android, perfect for when my Chromebook is in tablet mode. Initially, you would only get two choices, Chrome OS and Android. When you put your Chromebook into developer mode, then you get the third choice of Linux. The Linux choice, logs you into a distribution flavor of Linux- Ubuntu, Mint, MATE, Arch Linux, etc, that you install. No need for any kind of dual or triple booting? Wouldn't this be a great concept for a Pixel 3 Chromebook, announced at Google I/O 2016 this May?

+Sam Arriola​​ My point is that neither Chrome, nor Android are actually GNU OSes, but the 3rd option IS GNU.

However, I should add that your idea is nice, and your effort is much appreciated.

Thanks Google for my birthday doodle. In a couple years I imagine they'll make a more customized doodle reflecting stuff  related to my Google+ posts. Maybe not, judging from my Facebook  Lookback movie which wasn't even a movie, it was only a  collage image.

So, I can use it on my Chromebook without having to run it through a Crouton installed chrooted Linux setup with Wine.
