Chrome OS Flex is the successor to Neverware’s CloudReady operating system, which brings Chrome OS to nearly any old Mac or PC. CloudReady and Chrome OS Flex, like standard Chrome OS, are built on Chromium OS, Google’s open-source desktop operating system. However, unlike CloudReady, which bypassed every previous version of Chromium OS due to the additional development overhead of forking the open-source project, Chrome OS Flex will receive updates as quickly as normal Chromebooks – a significant improvement over its predecessor.
Chrome OS Flex can accomplish practically everything the conventional edition of Chrome OS does. The Chrome browser is prominent, allowing you to access the web in a lightweight and secure operating system environment. You’ll be hard-pressed to find any computer-breaking infections due to the absence of native program support, which is usually what allows the malware to do the most damage. Despite the lack of native apps, you can use all of your favorite web apps, such as Gmail, Google Drive, Microsoft Office Online, and a plethora of other wonderful productivity tools.
