Google has announced that its bringing Windows to Chrome OS via a partnership with VMWare.

Today, customers can fully embrace the cloud with Chromebooks using VMware Horizon DaaS. VMware and Google are working together to make the migration of legacy applications even easier, by using the HTML5/Blast experience from Chromebooks. This means you can work with Chromebooks and connect to a Windows experience running VMWare Horizon View.

VMware Horizon DaaS enables customers to centralize other desktop environments and manage these as a cloud service. Users will be able to access their Windows applications, data and desktops using VMware’s Blast HTML5 technology to their Chromebook.

Chromebooks captured 21% of U.S. commercial laptop sales in 2013 and surpassed MacBook sales. Google is hoping this additional option will help boost those sales even higher.

I have to comment on the 21% commercial laptop sales surpassing Macbook sales. The Chromebook isn't a laptop. I'd call it an internet appliance or a tablet style os with a laptop form factor for 200-250 dollars. It has it's niche but you can't use it in a sales comparison with a traditional laptop. That's like saying sliced bread beat out sandwiches in sales.
