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.

Do I understand this correctly?

So when Windows gets a feature update: Things change to often

When ChromeOS gets a feature update: Things have changed enough that we can replace the version of Windows that we don't update

I choose my Operating System based on the software that needs to run on it, what other people around me are using and what is allowed/provided by the IT-department. Getting "SMB-support" in ChromeOS makes ChromeOS better and is a great feature, but it won't make replacing programs any easier. It is like adding mouse-support to iOS...it will make that OS better but will not make it run programs that don't run now
