comment True Ubuntu on Chromebook ARM (samsung)
It's not bad, working about the same, pretty much what I expected with 14.04.

comment Should I use xz or lzma compression?
@FaheemMitha: Since this is a post, and not an educational reference or original research, the citation would only be the project page. I assumed since it was from the LZMA-Utils author, and he wrote BOTH utility sets with intention of xz-utils replacing legacy LZMA-Utils, it was self-evident. ...But For anyone who want's to get more details, tukaani.org/lzma.

comment ASCII art generator with OCR
Nothing I've seen thus far, but it would be an excellent c coding project to consider with libcaca. If it was done properly, with C, it would dramatically improve SDL -> libcaca -> ncurses output.

comment Enable acpi on Ubuntu 13.04 ARM ChromeBook
The acpi package is just utilities that work with active ACPI interfaces. They won't work if ACPI itself isn't active in the kernel. You would already need the /sys/ and /proc/ interfaces to use that package. Which would be impossible, in this circumstance, since the board itself doesn't support ACPI.

comment True Ubuntu on Chromebook ARM (samsung)
This is also what I read on the ChrUbuntu webpage, "A single script that can install any Ubuntu version: 13.10, 12.04.3 LTS, even the latest daily dev image. (Note: ARM Chromebook is currently limited to 12.04.3 as newer versions are broken on ARM)". It appears this script lacks support for the newer releases, when installing on the Samsung Series 3 (ARM). At least as reported by the developer.

comment Is it preferable to boot from an SD card or from a USB flash drive?
I also wanted to mention, I prefer using a class 10 UHS-I SD Card. The Chromebook only has those two USB ports, and only one being 3.0, so I felt it was best to keep them free.

comment Is it preferable to boot from an SD card or from a USB flash drive?
I was reading that booting from the ARM Chromebook USB 3.0 had some sort of problem in the past. I wasn't able to find any good recent info though, so might want to test it out.
