This was the Chrombook of my mother. An ASUS CB5-311 with an ARM CPU. This thing is pretty fast and can be used for 12 hours straight on one charge. But Google decided to EOL it and not release updates anymore.
I'd like to not throw it away. What options are left? Chromium OS builds seem to be tricky, because of the ARM CPU. Is there a way to install a "normal" Linux? I mean a proper installation not chrooted with crouton.

@brejoc GalliumOS is pretty good for Chromebooks. Not sure your model is supported
It's generally the way to go if you want normal Linux on a Chrome-device
