I mean: what can they offer to Chrome OS users? Typical Linux desktop?
2007 showed that users are not interested in that. It looks like
typical internal projects: engineers are familiar with Linux and I guess use
Linux in Google a lot, so it makes sanse to offer them virtualized Linux with
Neatx. As for Chrome OS... this is OS for "mere mortals", right? They have no
use for that stuff - uless it's Windows-based virtual computer. And
the last thing Google wants is to promore Windows further.
This being said I'm pretty sure someone will provide such service.
But for that they'll need some free client ported to NaCl and right now Neatx
only works with proprietary client... oops?
