Google has officially released ChromeOS Flex, a method of replacing the operating system on older PCs and Macs that essentially turns them into Chromebooks.
The idea is that if you have an aging Mac lying around that can’t run macOS 12 Monterey, then you can install ChromeOS Flex on it using a bootable USB stick and then try out what Google’s cloud-first operating system has to offer.
Google began testing ChromeOS Flex earlier this year with an early access preview. After having resolved 600 bugs since then, the company is encouraging individuals, schools, and businesses to download the software to “easily try modern computing with cloud-based management” while extending the lifespan of older devices, thereby reducing e-waste.
