Well, I’ll be. For all the new features and shape-shifting updates Google’s constantly cookin’ up for its Chrome OS platform, the most eye-opening Chromebook change of the year isn’t even coming from within Google’s walls.
In fact, it’s coming from one of Google’s biggest, fiercest competitors — a company that’d very much like to see Chromebooks fizzle out and fade away.
Don’t you just love inadvertent irony?
The change of which we speak stems from a recent announcement by Microsoft — yes, Microsoft! — and it technically has nothing to do with Chrome OS at all, even.
