      Ales: The article you have linked says nothing about how to install this OS on a Mac, or why this is a good idea, or how this depends on the version of macOS one is running. Is it the same for Big Sur as for Monterrey? For an Intel Mac as for an Mx one?

      Ex-Windows user (Win. 98, XP, 7); since mid-2017 using also macOS. Presently on Monterey 12.15 & sometimes running also Linux (Mint).

      MacBook Pro circa mid-2015, 15" display, with 16GB 1600 GHz DDR3 RAM, 1 TB SSD, a Haswell architecture Intel CPU with 4 Cores and 8 Threads model i7-4870HQ @ 2.50GHz.
      Intel Iris Pro GPU with Built-in Bus, VRAM 1.5 GB, Display 2880 x 1800 Retina, 24-Bit color.
      macOS Monterey; browsers: Waterfox "Current", Vivaldi and (now and then) Chrome; security apps. Intego AV

        It is not dual boot. It is clean install of Chrome OS on Windows PC and Macs.
        It is suitable for old PCs and Macs to give them new life.


        You can try Chrome OS Flex without installing it by booting directly from the USB drive – risk free.

        When you’re ready, install Chrome OS Flex on your PC or Mac to replace your operating system.

          did this to help a family member start using a chromebook.

          I usb boot my dell xps with chrome os/flex, we connect using chrome remote desktop (easy peasy)

          when I’m done helping, I reboot my windows 10 normally.

          no magic, it just works great.

          this os is perfect and forget about the 2nd Tuesday every month
