Almost the same on Windows except there are alternatives like GIMP instead of Photoshop, anything can be installed, but I mostly use developer tools and cli so it depends on what the user wants to do with the laptop and why he wants linux.
I am using a Chromebook and I want to learn Corel draw however this isn't possible because Chromebooks don't support Windows.
Can Ubuntu Linux be installed to a 16GB Chrome so i can use Corel draw

Corel Draw is a windows application, the only way to run on Linux is either using wine but na unpredictable thing. Just tell the person to buy a laptop. Chromebook is a toy item, you can install WIndows but na long process

Why?

What exactly do you want to do with Windows that's impossible on your Chromebook?

kindly tell me the programs or features that is available with Ubuntu and can it be installed on an HP Chromebook 11 with 16Gb

The hardware on this device makes using windows on it a foolish venture.

It's too underpowered and doesn't have sufficient capacity.


You can enable the Linux subsystem on a Chromebook and run native Linux apps directly.

That's a more sensible option and you can run proper apps like GIMP to save your Corel draw fixation.

At your skill level a Chromebook is actually a betteroption

Check if the Linux beta option is available in your settings and enable it.

Turn on Linux (Beta)

At the bottom right, select the time.
Select Settings .
Under "Linux (Beta)," select Turn On.
Follow the steps on the screen. Setup can take 10 minutes or more.
A terminal window opens. You have a Debian 10 (Buster) environment. You can run Linux commands, install more tools using the APT package manager, and customize your shell.

I want the handler I bought it for to be able to use it without Internet. I bought it for her to carry out research writing and she can't afford to perpetually stay online while working. I want her to have something she can work with without necessarily using the Internet while working
