VMware and Google announce Windows applications for Chrome OS

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VMware

VMware is teaming up with Google to bring Windows applications to Chrome OS machines.

The system will use VMware's Blast HTML5 technology to virtualise a Windows environment under Chrome OS.

With the rise in sales for the Google based operating system (OS), there has arisen a need to find a way to run traditional systems in a Chrome environment, and this represents an opportunity for enterprise users who are still tied to Windows XP, which is into its final two months of service life, to continue more or less uninterrupted without having to fear the threat of malware.
