I thought the road forward was Android, not Chrome OS?

The Chrome OS should have android compatibility layer on it.

I’ll buy if I can install regular Linux, the rk3399 already has good kernel support so hopefully Acer hasn’t locked it down too much

Since it’s based on RK339,9, could there a chance to boot Linux on it from sd-card or something?
