Thanks to a handy set of scripts, you’ve long been able to install an instance of Linux on a Chromebook and switch between the two platforms with a simple keypress. What if you could run Linux inside the Chrome OS environment in its own window, though? That’s even better.

On this week’s Chrome Show podcast, we highlighted the Crouton Integration extension that lets you do just that. We also discussed why the new Acer Chromebook 15 isn’t likely on store shelves before April and why if you are still using [company]Google[/company] Android 4.0 on a mobile device you might want to consider a replacement for the Chrome browser.

Well technically you’re running Linux in Linux, as ChromeOS is just a form of Linux. :P
