Does anyone know how this works?

Would I have the ability to buy a chromebook and proceed to learn Python, C++, ETC., and still be able to test the programs to make sure the code is correct? Wondering due to the inability to install stuff, for the most part.

I believe the Chromebook is a typical netbook with a Linux-based OS on it, so you can install anything you want, including compilers and such, even another OS.
However, Chrome OS is still under development; if you want programming you should use a full OS like Linux or Windows.

No I'm pretty sure you can't just install things on ChromeOS.. It's Chromium OS though, because you can't get the source of the auto updating one, only the developer's one.
