Google’s Chrome OS includes a shell environment known as Chrome Shell, or “crosh” for short. Crosh includes several terminal commands that can be used on all Chromebooks, even if developer mode isn’t enabled.

Makes me want to get a Chromebook....

Can we have less Chrome OS articles... we have hardly any real linux ones, or Mac OS X ones... and they are far more used OS's

That would be nice as well...

Heh, and I thought the only useful command was shell

Shell should open a full bash prompt, but I think you need to enable a developer mode or something for that (not sure, I don't have a Chromebook).

ok. I was talking about the linux side of terminal. if there is a command to switch the side what might it be ?

Like I said, you need to enable Developer Mode first; this will wipe all data stored on your Chromebook, so back it up first. Every Chromebook seems to have a different method; Google yours.

Crosh is good! So is Chrome. The only problem I have with Crosh is that if it stays idle for a minute or so it disconnects. Have you managed to resolve this issue?
I work with few ssh connections at a time and it becomes an issue.
