Calibre on Chromebook Linux

Google just announced the integration of Chromebooks with Linux - https://www.engadget.com/2018/05/08/...port-official/.
There are two Windows programs keeping me tied to Windows devices, one is Calibre. Would love to run Calibre on a Chromebook when this is released. Will it be possible?
Thanks,
Dave

As I understand that announcement, you are supposed to be able to run any linux program o chromebook. I know of no reason calibre should be an exception.

Linux apps vs programs

The article talks about being able to run Linux apps. Not sure if they are the same as a download and install.

They are basically making th eapps from some linux distro(I think debian) available on the chromebook. calibre is available on all linux distros (usually terribly outdated versions, but still better than nothing).

The article says that Chromebooks will be running Debian in a virtual machine, so the only limitation should be the hardware on the Chromebook (which, with many of the lower cost Chromebooks, could be a serious limitation).
