Since Alice is basically based on Java I imagine it might be possible to port it to a Chromebook but the size of typical Alice movies would probably make it a real performance challenge.

I wish the current Alice source was available. It would be a great source for both learning how real projects are put together and for the community to find and suggest fixes for some of the eccentricities Alice displays from time to time.
