Raise Old PCs and Macs Back From the Dead With ChromeOS Flex

Night of The Living Chromebook

Officially released today, ChromeOS Flex allows you to breathe new life into your aging Macs and PCs… you just have to sell their soul to Google and make them into Chromebook zombies. But hey it’s free!

In all seriousness though, ChromeOS Flex is pretty cool. It’s basically ChromeOS that’s meant to easily replace your (potentially outdated and unsupported) MacOS or Windows installation, which will be particularly potent on older, slower machines.

I fully expect tot see this being a god-send for doctor’s offices, or schools, maybe even small businesses that don’t have the budget to get everyone new PCs or Macs. ChromeOS Flex will be a simple to roll out, secure solution and I think a lot of sysadmins will appreciate it in the future. There’s also the benefit of minimizing e-waste, which is something that’s becoming increasingly important.

Google has even posted a handy list, containing hundreds of models of PC and Mac that ChromeOS Flex will either work flawlessly, have minor issues, or run very very crappy on.

ChromeOS Flex is a pretty great idea, though it’s fun to make fun of Chromebooks or ChromeOS as a whole – there really is a huge market for such a service and you can’t ignore the positive impact of a lightweight, web-based OS.
