Grrrrrr need escribe for Chrome OS

Hi, maybe my info is incorrect, but ChromeOS is basically running on Linux kernel with a lot of proprietary stuff from google... so maybe you can run a Linux version or eventually Windows version via WINE? I can imagine that will be a pain in the ass but for now I see that as only option.

I don't own any chromebook so I can't help you any further, that's only an idea.

Does chrome OS support virtual machines ? Rather then using wine, I would highly recommend just creating a window's virtual machine.

In the past my experience with wine has been shit (years ago - may not be true).. Regardless tho a virtual machine will blow it out of the water in terms of compatibility.

Yeah, so CrossOver is basically a Wine (much simpler to use), and I have good experience with this product on a macOS and standard Linux distros, but no idea how will it behave as android app.

About the Virtual Machines - I agree this is the best option for compatibility. But you need copy of a Windows and most Chromebooks are pretty basic machines. Not all of them even run on x86 but on ARM - I'm not sure if those CPUs can handle virtualization. If you have a computer with x86 CPU you can also try dualboot with Windows or standrad Linux distro.
