HARDWARE --
Collabora has been making improvements to the Tegra-based Chromebooks for running the non-ChromeOS Linux desktop.

The Nyan Blaze and Big Tegra K1 powered Chromebooks should now work nicely with Linux given the eleven new patches done by Tomeu Vizoso of consulting firm Collabora.

With the new Linux kernel patches, WiFi, trackpad, audio playback, and audio recording are now working for these two Google Chromebooks.

More details via this patch series. Hopefully the material will be ready for merging into the Linux 3.20 kernel for bettering these Chromebooks for those wishing to load their own Linux distribution rather than use Google's Chrome OS.
