Pretty cool
Google Intern has added support to run Crouton¹ in a Chrome OS Window. Thanks to a 4,471 lines patch², fearless people can now run their favorite Linux distributions on their Chrome Devices in a nice window without jumping between Virtual Terminals as before. 

Here's how to get there:
- First, you need to make sure your Chrome Device is in Developer Mode³ (not Dev Channel).
- Install the Crouton Integration Chrome Extension⁴
- Download crouton⁵
- Open a shell with <Ctrl>+<Alt>+T, type shell and hit <Enter>
- Run sudo sh ~/Downloads/crouton t unity,extension 
Enjoy!

The new Publishing Interface makes it REALLY easy to embed or link a document to your site.  I also like the expanded timing/playback features for Slides.
