OR Parallels is known to make it easy to run Windows applications on Macs. Now the company has partnered with Google to bring Windows applications to another major platform: Chrome OS. Or at least, the corporate version of the operating system Chrome.
OR Parallels reports that Google Partnership will allow you to run "full-featured Windows applications, including Microsoft Office" on Chromebook Enterprise devices. THE Parallels It also emphasizes that its software will allow remote collaboration with Windows applications, regardless of this.
The press release does not go into much detail, but is obviously aimed at companies that have chosen to use the Chrome OS but also have access to Windows.
While I would worry about performance, as Chromebooks already tend to be low-power devices without any virtualization add-ons, running Windows-only applications on Chromebooks could be a lifeline, especially for those working from home. these days without access to their work devices.
To mention that from old there were rumors who wanted Google to allow Windows applications. THE Parallels is probably the best solution that could be due to the experience and reliability of the company. The results will be shown in Chrome OS "in the coming months".
