lubuntu 20.04 on my (not so) chromebook

I just completed the install of the Lubuntu 20.04 version which was officially released today and I am impressed.

The Chromebook keyboard and trackpad are always a pain on most linux distos apart from ones running on Gnome 3, Cinnamon, Pantheon. XFCE and LXQt never worked properly; although I did have workaround to get it working.

The lubuntu 20.04 has all of it resolved!!! Love it. There was a tiny improvement in the Geekbench score from Mx Linux.

Geekbench 5 on my (not so) Chromebook

I have a chromebook which I cant seem to understand why I bought, but is now a way I spend time doing meaningless stuff on.

My Chromebook is an Acer Chromebook 14 and is running Mx Linux 19.1. Yes, Obviously I had to get rid of Chrome OS as its an abomination.

The results were sooo bad, I felt like throwing this into a recycling bin at my local BestBuy.
