I’m writing this blog post on a Chromebook Pixel. In Emacs. On Ubuntu, as a chroot, thanks to crouton.
Why do I have a Chromebook Pixel? Google gave one to every Google I/O 2013 attendee.1
Although I was happy to get such a cool new gadget, I honestly wasn’t sure what I’d do with the thing. I really like my MacBook Pro Retina and wasn’t looking for an alternative. Also, although I love web apps and 45% of my day is in the web browser, another 45% is in Emacs using Racket — what about that?
