[I'm not sure whether this would be better on -hackers@ or -hardware@ 
but -questions@ seems like a good place to start.]

Is anyone considering getting FBSD to run on the Acer C7 Chromebook? The 
pros are that it's a cheap, small and relatively lightweight 64 bit 
Intel portable using integrated Intel graphics. The cons are that it's a 
Chromebook, so has a completely non-standard BIOS and boot sequence. 
However, Ubuntu has been hacked to boot on it (Google for "ChrUbuntu") 
so it's not totally locked down.

This would make a very useful little system, but the programming needed 
is beyond my skill set I'm afraid.
