It was an exciting announcement that Google and Parallels made in June: Windows programs will run on Chrome OS . Now the associated product has been released and the promise has been kept, but I didn't quite understand the meaning behind it.

"Parallels Desktop for Chromebook Enterprise" is the name of the product and it doesn't bring Windows programs to the Chrome desktop, but installs a virtual Windows PC. However, this also means that the system requirements correspond to those of a Windows PC: The host Chromebook must be equipped with an Intel Core i5 or i7 and have at least 16 GB of RAM.

To put it a bit exaggerated: You need hardware that you as a Chrome OS customer no longer want to buy in order to use something that you actually no longer want to use. The integration between Chrome OS and the virtual Windows machine is also limited; for example, you cannot create shortcuts to Windows programs as with the corresponding solution for macOS. However, you can link file types or web links with the virtual Windows and in this way switch directly from Chrome OS to the Windows environment.

Other integration features are a shared clipboard, shared user profiles or the sharing of folders between the host and guest system. Printers that are set up in Chrome OS can also be addressed from the Windows environment. Parallels plans to support cameras, microphones and USB peripherals in the future.

That is the only scenario in which I can imagine its use: as a transition technology.

Further information on Parallels Desktop for Chromebook Enterprise can be found on the official homepage , where a test version is also available.
