Converted my aging SP3 to a Chromebook (with chrome OS not chromium)


i converted my aging SP3 to a Chromebook using project croissant ( not sure about sharing links because of the legality ) it’s Chrome OS not chromium had app store working and Linux is working everything works except the microphone which I might work on . This did teach me alot about using Linux which was fun . But tbh maybe because I grew up with windows. Chrome OS is just too simple for me but it’s good for just browsing etc

Anyway fun little project for anyone with ageing hardware

    CloudReady is much easier to install and is supported by Neverware.

    Does croissant get Android support?

    Are there any benefits to this? Is there a noticeable perf improvement for example? (I remember getting this when converting old desktop PCs from XP/Vista to the linux of the time).

    Any issues of things not working or other bugs? (I can imagine drivers being a bit more challenging with specialised kit like surface pro tablets).
