Google has acquired Startup Neverware, which converts old Windows 7 PCs to Chrome OS devices via CloudReady.

Neverware has created a type of Chrome OS called CloudReady that turns old Windows computers into Chrome OS devices.

For those who still insist on old Windows 7 PCs, CloudReady might be the perfect solution, although Microsoft has stopped offering free fixes as of January 15th.

CloudReady receives fixes and fixes like Chrome OS and it is released every six weeks. It is very suitable for the regular users who do not want to venture into the Linux world.

CloudReady is typically deployed in schools that use G Suite for Education to turn legacy PCs into reality.

The device is managed by Google's admin department, businesses and individuals can use it as well, and older Macs can also run CloudReady.

The Home Edition is provided free of charge, but it is not integrated into the Google Assessment Module and does not provide any technical support.

The Education subscription is $ 20 per device per year and includes one year of technical support, while the Institutional subscription is $ 49 per device per year and one year of technical support. Technical support is provided.

In a statement, Neverware said Neverware and CloudReady will join the OS teams at Google and Chrome.

She added: Since CloudReady is now officially certified Chrome OS, you can expect the sharing mechanism to be compatible with the official release of Chrome OS.

The company said: It is committed to serving educational institutions and existing customers. There are currently no plans to change prices, and Google will respect all existing multi-year licenses.

Neverware was founded in 2011 and CloudReady launched in 2015.

It is mentioned that after installing CloudReady, it will be impossible to return to Windows and it will become very difficult to access your local hard drive. Because CloudReady relies almost exclusively on Google Drive for storage.

One of the negative effects of Neverware OS is that Google does not officially support it. This means that even based on the Chromium Project, it is not possible to install Android apps on the device running the device.

Google's direct support makes it more attractive to schools and businesses as they can get direct help from the company with technical problems.
