You seem to have made the most of your first post.

No one is forcing you to use linux. I use Windows and many other OS's everyday and I'm OK!


For overdrive have you seen this web page? Also one may be able to run windows app in linux with wine or codeweavers app. http://help.overdrive.com/customer/p...-a-chromebook-
