A coming revision to Chrome OS will enable Windows-compatible network browsing by default. This means that Chromebooks will be able to connect with Windows PCs just as easily as other Windows PCs do today.

A very welcome change, especially among corporate users.

Great for home/small businesses

The people running home/small businesses do not really have the luxury of time to play much around with their systems. And the 6-month upgrade cycle with Windows 10 is not helping here.

Having Chromebooks capable to natively share files with Windows systems on a local network opens the door for slowly replacing Windows systems with Chrome OS based systems. While some form of server (headless?) would likely be needed, the requirements may not be so high that an existing systems could not be converted to such a duty.
