Chrome users may soon have the ability to double-boot in the same way that Mac owners have done for years. According to a new report, a new feature called Campfire will bring Windows 10 to Chromebooks in the near future.
The news comes from the XDA Developer Blog, a major resource for Android developers, whose apps now work on many Chromebooks. The first news of this feature appeared when references to an Alt OS were found in Google Pixelbook firmware
Expect to know more about Campfire soon, as the report notes that “the developers have been pushing for merged changes as soon as possible, indicating a tight schedule on the Chrome roadmap.” This revelation could be as soon as the unannounced (but strongly rumored) October 4 Pixel Event.
The report also notes that Campfire will not only be available on the Pixelbook. however, Windows 10 requires 16 to 20 GB of space (for 32-bit and 64-bit versions, respectively), so all Chromebooks do not have the necessary space.
It also seems that Google will not make it difficult to run Campfire, as this feature will not require Developer mode.
