Sometimes, you find yourself staring at something you could never have imagined being possible based on its humble beginnings. The Wright Brothers pilot the airplane for 12 seconds; then, Neil Armstrong lands on the moon. The first microcomputer kit is made available in 1975; then, 120 million computers are sold in the world so far THIS YEAR! ThePatterson–Gimlin video captures Big Foot on film in 1967; then, Big Foot stars in a series of beef jerky commercials. No one could ever have predicted that these initial events would lead into much bigger and better things.

In 1996, CodeWeaverswas started with the single goal of making Windows based applications run on Linux computers. It was the simple, honest, and noble goal of our founder, Jeremy White. In 1996, the technology pundits were convinced that Linux was set to take over the world. The only outstanding obstacle for the Linux platform was running Microsoft Office software. Hence, CrossOver was born (maybe more or less hatched). In 1996, there were no smart phones, no tablets, no Android, no Google, no Pokémon Go. There was no indication that computers would be more mobile, more connected, or more compact. And yet, here we are today.

So where is ‘here’, you ask? TODAY, Google released Android for Intel based ChromeBooks. ANDCrossOver for Android installed and ran on a Google ChromeBook. More importantly, we were able to install the Steam Client into CrossOver for Android and run LIMBO and other games. MORE IMPORTANTLY, we have DirectX 9 support, keyboard support, mouse support, and sound support TODAY!!! PEOPLE, we are staring at a Leprechaun riding on the back of a Unicorn while taking a picture of a UFO. We are running CrossOver through Android on a ChromeBook running a Windows based game launched from the Steam client. THIS HAS NEVER BEEN DONE BEFORE…EVER!!!

There will be more testing. There will inevitably be some cleanup work to do. There will be . BUT… CrossOver for Android is working and real and supporting the Steam Client and able to launch games and is actually playable. From our most humble beginnings, I don’t think anyone, Jeremy White included, ever dreamed that CrossOver would be able to run on ChromeBooks. And yet, here we are with people flying planes, people landing on the moon, and Big Foot. I’d say that’s pretty rare company for a small software developer from Minnesota.

If you are interested in testing CrossOver for Android when it's released, send an e-mail [email protected]. You’ll be part of the very first group of people to witness this next evolution of technology for your very own. More to come soon!!!

So this will run Windows apps, on Intel Android tablets, without needing a license of Windows? No VM or anything, it just runs the binaries?

Yeah, Crossover is built on Wine, so it's a compatibility layer that doesn't require Windows.

I use both, Linux my preferred machine, but WINE doesn't effectively run Acrobat for me so I need to keep a windoze machine mainly for that. On the Crossover webpage, it looks like Acrobat isn't so successful either.

Nose pressed against the android App Store glass looking at all the yummy apps whilst my beloved but incompatible Chromebook slowly escapes from my loose grasp. Google! Why have you forsaken me?

Genuine Skype, huh?, where'd you think Skype started off from in the first place if NOT on the Symbian (Linux), then Android (Linux) Platforms to begin with?, longgggggggggg before Microsoft then bought it out, etc? (think about it?).

As for that linked Chromebook you mentioned above, WOW!, for what it is, that's expensive!, a Gaming Laptop could be blatantly had for similar figures to that?.

Anyways, as for your Google Play Store APK File?, via your Chrome Book, surf to here:

http://www.apkmirror.com/apk/google-inc/google-play-store/google-play-store-6-8-44-f-all-0-3087104-release/google-play-store-6-8-44-f-0-3087104-android-apk-download/download/

Or to here:

Have fun with all that ...

Oh dear.
The link is out of date my brother paid approx £240.00
I bought my first mobile in1996 a Nokia City Man and have owned most Psion products they made in their day.
Also have owned Psion shares as I thought the "three churches" of psion, sony and nokia were the future. - SYMBIAN.
I always knew smartphones would be the future my mistake was getting a PJB-100 mp3 player and missing out on Steve's vision of iPod and how it would change the world.(iPod touch just being a natural stepping stone for iPhone)
Anyway by your post you appear to think you know more than most.
all the best.

​Ha Nokia. They did have the future of smartphones with the N900 and Maemo/Meego and it even used an ARM Cortex A8, is just it didn't catch on. Apple were late to the party...

Interestingly Maemo/Meego lives on as Tizen powering Samsung Smart TVs.
