    Linux on ARM netbook isn't useful as there aren't ARM versions of Chrome, Flash, Java, etc.

      That is wrong, there are ARM versions of all three. And the ChromeOS on the Chromebook even ships with two of these installed by default.

            There isn't rpm/deb package with Chrome for Linux ARM

            There is Java for ARM, but it is 3 versions behind ( 6 vs 9) - I didn't notice it sooner

              It apparently doesn't make sense for Google to offer the browser as separate download because almost nobody will download it that way. But what you can see on the ARM Chromebook screenshots is definitely Chrome.
              Oracle JDK is not the same as OpenJDK, but both will run Java applications. OpenJDK is now the preferred method to install Java on Linux distributions. https://blogs.oracle.com/henrik/entr...openjdk_as_the

                How it is possible to install and update Chrome in openSUSE on ARM Chromebook if there isn't rpm package?

                  With ChromeOS it is possible.
                  You will have to ask that to OpenSUSE people why they have no package for ARM, not even of Chromium. I think it may have to do with lack of interest in adjusting their build scripts. https://build.opensuse.org/package/s...AFactory%3AARM

                    AFAIK Google is only company which can create rpm package with Chrome because Flash and PDF viewer aren't open source. Chromium doesn't include Flash.

                      Isn't it sad that you depend on three blobs, and they're standing between you and a piece of nice hw.
