After powerwashing my HP 14, I installed crouton again. I wanted to give the enlightenment window manager a go, and so I intalled crouton with the parameter -t e17, of course. Anyway, enlightenment is buggy on my box, so I decided to just install xfce4 in my chroot too...

My question is: Is there any inherent benefit in wiping my current chroot and starting over again with a fresh chroot using now the -t xfce parameter, or if the install of xfce in my chroot as I've done is just as good? Many thanks in advance.

My -t preference is gnome.  I've been very happy with it.

Python's a pretty sweet language. You can pretty much guess how things should be laid out. Everyone should start using sage!

Feels a little like a ghost town around here. Somebody surprise me with something amazing that can be done on Google+. Is it really just the circles we care about?

I don't know how surprising it is supposed to be. But it's integrated with a lot of other Google features. Grouping and menu interaction are much better on + than on Facebook. Just keep inviting people, it will feel less like a ghost town in due time.

So I'm interested in making the following set of instructions

http://chromeos-cr48.blogspot.com/2013/12/try-chrome-os-canary-without-risking.html

work on my new HP Chromebook 14, but I have been unsuccessful in my first couple of attempts. After following the instructions and attempting to boot from my sdcard at the legacy boot screen, it just hangs at ``Booting from hard disk.'' Now, I'm certain I can boot from sdcard as I just booted a live version of Ubuntu 13.10 from it, and I'm curious if anyone has been able to make the above instructions work on a newer Intel based Chromebook? Any suggestions would be appreciated. #chromebook  
There's been some buzz recently about Kenny Strawn's discovery of Chrome OS Canary (nice work Kenny!). If you're not aware, Canary is a version of Chrome OS that is even more up to date with code changes and new features than...

Thanks Jay. I've also tried Control+U. It was exactly because that failed that I began messing with legacy boot. Anyway, here's what happens with Control + U. After following your instructions and creating the disk with Chrome Os on it, I hit control +U. It goes to a black screen like it's going to boot (for, say, five seconds), then beeps and puts me back at the ``scary screen''. All subsequent control + u's end in a quick black screen (less than a second) and a beep. I've seen at least one person with the same problem on your blog (a different post though), but I haven't seen a satisfactory answer yet.
