    I highly doubt it considering the price points and such, but even if you were correct, from a consumer standpoint that's unacceptable.

    Then it would be nice to see a powerful chromebook capable of running the IDE and doing heavy operations such as compiling.

    Needs 8-16 GB RAM and 4-8 CPU cores.
    There are now several higher end CBs. There is a m7, 16 GB RAM, from HP. There are other higher ends from Dell and Thinkpad, etc.

    The whole premise of Chrome OS is to have a secure, sandboxed operating system with little to no administrative access.
    Running plain Linux applications would break that behaviour.

    I wish that Google would instead port Arc++ from Chrome OS so that Android apps could be run/tested on traditional Linux with native performance.

    Android Studio has been shipping with its own integrated Java bundle for some time now, you don't need to install Java system-wide.

    There is Terminal IDE and Kevin Boon's KBOX which basically provide a terminal session including Vim and all the tools needed for Java and C++ development. Though both feel a little hacky and are a bit out of date, it does allow Android to be self sufficient.

    I used to use an Ouya, bluetooth keyboard and KBOX in this way until I just decided that a Raspberry Pi was more useful and flexible for this kind of development lol.

    The reasons are so obvious why that will never work for games.
