Sadly, I am sure that my Asus C302CA does not run Linux Apps. The "Linux Beta" entry does NOT appear in the files window. I have done this process several times hoping that whatever didn't work would mysteriously just disappear so I could use Linux apps on the Asus C303CA. But it does not work.

Apparently, Google has not flipped the secret switch that enables Linux Beta to be compatible with this make and model.

I have read reports on numerous technical support forums that the C302CA, the C302C, and the C302 are not all the same machines. Each seems to have different processor compatibility issues. I have also been told that sometimes the same model numbers have different processors depending on their build dates.

Give it a try on your particular machine. You won't break it if it is not compatible. It just won't work if it is the same as my unit. Good luck.

Is "too much screen time" really a problem?
Yes -- smartphone addiction is ruining relationships.
Yes -- but primarily due to parents' failure to regulate kids' use.
Possibly -- long-term effects on health are not yet known.
Not really -- lack of self-discipline and good judgement are the problems.
No -- angst over "screen time" is just the latest overreaction to technology.
No -- what matters is the quality of content, not the time spent viewing it.
