Thanks for sharing your perspective and your writing, Aaron. What’s funny is that I joined a startup a month after I wrote this article and they have an unlimited vacation (or flexible, as you wisely put it) vacation policy. I like it a lot. You’re right that money isn’t the only variable that matters.
This is probably my most used button in the Gmail app. I use it all the time to “unread” emails that I need to respond to later. If I leave them read (or mark them as starred), I’ll honestly never look at them again. This button is my savior.
Thanks! This article is a couple years old now and Chrome OS just keeps getting better. I hope you continue liking your Chromebook.
I hadn’t heard of Linux Mint, I’ll check it out.
Aungthurhahein I would get the best one you can afford if you plan to use it heavily because responsiveness becomes very important. If you’re listening to music, running Chrome (in Linux) with a lot of tabs, etc you will feel it. Battery life is outstanding though, at least with the Chromebook 11. For light use, it’s perfect. I love how portable it is. Install crouton and let me know what you think!
