    The latest Tech Preview now gives Chrome OS and Android users access to Microsoft Office 2013, the Steam Client, Wizard101, and other interesting Windows applications too numerous to mention. Additionally, V.2 Tech Preview includes multi-window support for running multiple applications, cut and paste between Windows applications and Android applications, and an enhanced user interface that makes installing applications simpler and more intuitive.

    Requires a chromebook with the Play Store, or an Android device with the x86 chipset.

    And I only have an old Samsung Chromebook (which I've nuked the CrOS in it long time ago) and an ARM-based HP Android tablet... kill me now.

    My mom does have an Asus FonePad 7 LTE though, I'm sure it's Atom-based but it's only running KitKat, but I can have a look on it.

    Edit: Screw it the app needs Lollipop or higher, the ASUS may have official Lollipop ROM but I'm not taking the risk especially when it's not mine.

    I finally got around to installing crossover and trying it out. It's actually just Wine, ported to run on Chrome OS android. I didn't try running MS office (which is what everyone really wants crossover for), but I found its basically the same trials and tribulations you get when running wine on linux.
