Chrome OS Tablets can run Linux, making the dream of OTG GNU/linux a reality. The tablet in question runs an OP1 arm processor, you could easily build a smaller tablet with Chrome OS. I hope a 7", 7.9", or 8" chrome os tablet with stylus comes out.

It's run by Google's OS. That's not a dream by any sane standard.

Dream for some. (Overly surveilled) nightmare for others.

In the end, the interoperability might end up being a gateway into proper Linux if only the ****ing software was more compelling than the freedom.

You can strip out the surveillance components just like you could on Ubuntu.

There's a difference here. On Ubuntu, the operating system was still functional without the tacked-on surveillance. If you strip out the surveillance from Google's offerings, they're barely functional at best.
