In the middle of the summer, interesting news came out regarding the latest update to Chrome OS and Chromebooks. It appears we are that much closer to seeing something that could give the executives at Microsoft and Apple nightmares in the months to come.
The Google Play Store will eventually come to Chrome OS.
Though it’s only available via the developer channel on select models, more will be added later on. I myself have purchased a newer Samsung Chromebook that’s Intel-based so that I can eventually test Crossover Office on it.
I’ll just have to be patient.
In the meantime, there are possibilities that can be seen in the future. Imagine being able to purchase inexpensive Chrome-based systems, install Android-based productivity apps on them, and have them used in an enterprise environment.
This could wind up disrupting the computer industry yet again.
I founded The *Nixed Report in 2005 after realizing that there were so many forms of entertainment out there that was either being ignored, minimized, or misrepresented. I use *nix-like systems to this very day and that includes Android and Chrome-based devices.
