My experience for what its worth
I have tried cloudready over the years but mostly ended up disappointed because the PC's never were supported fully or certified. I came into a older notebook a HP Folio 9470m with a Ivy Bridge 3427u that had no OS on it. Windows 10 did work, but this notebook was supported more for the Windows 7 era of OS. Since cloudready had this model on certified list I decided to try it. Installed just fine, but I was disappointed in a few things. First off my brightness F keys didn't work, which did work in several Linux distro's I tried. Audio was weak which other Linux desktops had similar issues. Surprised that battery life wasn't better compared to a full Linux desktop. Maybe slightly better was cloudready but not what I was expecting since Chromebooks get great battery life. All in all the limitations of Chromium OS leaves me wanting to go back to a full Linux install. Maybe Google will infuse some improvements or maybe Google will just eventually kill off Neverware? We all know how Google likes to do that when they get tired of something.
