Some investigative work by XDA Developers has uncovered some code that is intended for a future release of Chrome OS-touting laptops. However, you won8217;t be able to run Windows 10 on all Chromebooks 8211; largely because many Chromebooks don8217;t ship with anything like enough on board storage to take Microsoft8217;s OS.
Equally, it looks like Campfire won8217;t be restricted to super-powerful Chromebooks like the Google Pixelbook 8211; hopefully Google will provide more details about this at its Pixel launch in early October.
The move is likely to encourage more people to buy Chrome-branded laptops 8211; those that are attracted by the simplicity of Chrome OS but who also need to use Windows from time to time. Google will hope, of course, that people will realise they actually don8217;t need to use Windows and eventually.
Google has also been in trouble with the European authorities over the perceived anti-competitiveness of some aspects of Android 8211; it will hope that it can avoid simialr accusations when it comes to Chromebooks by opening them up to Windows.
