@matt It should work fine. It is all through a browser so as long as you don't block Google, it should work. Remember that Chromebooks are basically glorified web browsers with the necessary hardware included.
@matt we were using google classroom just fine on an Ubuntu 18.04 box
It was actually working fine on a pi 2 running Raspbien when there were no video components. Might've been fine then too, but I had no daytime debug time, so I just moved to an x86 box with sufficient horsepower to pull a train pulling a mule wanting to go the other direction
@joacim @firstname.lastname@example.org I'm really uncomfortable with using a school provided Chromebook when you consider the bullshit that schools can do with it.
@joacim @email@example.com Perhaps. But I'm not about to let one of those spyboxes into my house if I have a say in the matter.
I wonder if a Pinebook Pro would do the job...
@matt It is *expected* to buy into the Google ecosystem in Kindergarten now? God, what have we become?
I know nobody wants to hear that, but seriously, where does this corporate big data nonsense stop?
To force children into a dependency with a humongous and de facto unregulated corporation like Google (or amazon or Apple for that matter) should be illegal.
@matt I was able to use Google Classroom on my Linux laptop last semester for college, as well as back in high school. All of the Google suite stuff runs completely inside the browser as far as I know
Linux geeks doing what Linux geeks do...
