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.

At this point, Chrome OS and Android are as close to ubiquity as Desktop Linux is ever going to get, so I can hardly blame Google or Microsoft for not putting the resources into developing for a constantly changing and unstable platform when they can concentrate on the platforms that most customers really care about. It's just good business sense.

ChromeOS is still tiny, but it has potential; also, still a few billion people are left to adopt Android...
