+Simple update/upgrade system. Chromebook-Like.
+ Stability
+ Virtualbox, Flatpak, Crostini linux for added possibilities.

- Limited possibilities.
- Beta look and feel of new possibilities.

I tried an old laptop from V69 to V71 on Cloudready.
Pros:
1. Minimalist distro.
2. Reliable.
3. Comparable to pre-play-store chromebooks.
4. Allows to extend lifetine of older hardware.
5. May be ideal for "PC-Janitor" type of "for friends and family" installs if the users have simple requirements.
6. Virtualbox allows additional use on better harware.
7. Great promise and potential of VB, Crostini and Flatpak (later possibly appimage or snap).
8. Simple updates by occasional re-boots.

Disadvantages:
1. Not as stable as Chromebooks because hard/sofwtare less integrated. Test video-cards, Bleutooth, wifi etc..
2. No play-store.
3. Virtualbox reliable and stable.
4. Crostini and Flatpak have great promise. I was already able to run Libreoffice stably in Flatpak. But many packages (VLC, Kodi, work but with glitches at this moment). Crostini appeared and disappeared, I hope they get it to work.

I really like this distro. Not only is the native crostini experimental, they threw in Virtualbox on the home edition if you rather. Clean, quick - all the chrome OS goodness with a portal to greatness for experienced users.
