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.

Not sure why everyone would want an Android folder on their share!

I connected a floppy drive to my Note 8 and it creates two folders automatically. Annoying when you only have 720kb disks.

And this is different from desktop.ini, thumbs.db, .DS_Store and ._AppleDoubles, or that weird folder Nautilus used to put there... how? Besides, it's not as if Android would have to create these folders, though the morons at Google would probably make sure it did. I do wonder what annoying extra files, hidden or otherwise, Chrome OS will stick in there when this feature comes out, thus necessitating another thing in the long list to clean up.
