ChromeOS Flex is Google’s modified version of the ChromeOS operating system, designed to be installed on x86 hardware. It is primarily targeted at businesses and organizations, with a focus on security as a primary consideration. The company promotes the software on the Chrome Enterprise blog, but notes that home users can also replace Windows or macOS with ChromeOS Flex.

Google emphasizes the importance of protecting businesses from potential threats posed by ChromeOS Flex, especially as many Windows 10 devices are losing support for the latest available operating system. The company proposes that businesses can install ChromeOS Flex on their existing fleet of Windows devices, modernizing them, extending their lifespan, and reducing their attack surface, ultimately saving on hardware refresh costs. In addition to its security features, Google highlights the familiarity of ChromeOS Flex for users of Chrome Browser or Google Workspace, as well as its manageability, flexibility, and low-maintenance, reliable nature.

The company also emphasizes the potential for reduced hardware costs and the opportunity to re-use older equipment, rather than contributing to e-waste.
