Eran also shared his personal experience and expertise around installing a variety of free tools including Ubuntu Linux, Gallium OS, and Libre Office on older Chromebooks that supports his own efforts to close the technology gap in his own community.

In June and September 2021 combined, there are 25 models of Chromebooks from Acer, Lenovo, Samsung and Toshiba that will expire and not be eligible for any updates. Chromebooks are inexpensive and easily available as they are used widely throughout school districts in the US. A lightweight operating system can make the most of these ‘expired’ computers (including the ability to use Zoom).
