crouton vs Chrubuntu
There are two or even three possibilities to install Linux in your machine. Two of them uses software and you will have chrome os and your favorite linux distro installed and the last option is to completely wipe your hard drive and install linux from scratch.
The difference between Crouton and Chrubuntu is that crouton runs your linux installation along side with Chrome OS kinda like virtualization and you can change easily between one installation and another by typing sudo startxfce4 command line in the terminal. It’s great if you run Chrome OS for default and occasionally want to use your linux installation. If you update your Chrome OS installation is more probable that you will loose your linux installation.
In the other hand there is Chrubuntu that lets you dual-boot and choose either Chrome OS or your Linux installation upon startup and in case you want to switch you need to reboot. It requires a more technical knowledge and you will see yourself using the terminal more often.
