tl;dr: Valve is bringing the Steam Linux client to chrome books via a Ubuntu based VM, and it will use Vulkan natively. This also explains why Valve recently ported Portal2 to DXVK/Vulkan.

Chrome OS has become a Frankenstein monster. Google keeps packing more and more stuff in via virtualization, and I wonder how they’ll manage it in the long term (Google and long term seem to be very distant currently). Not a fan of this development method.

Wonder if any currently available and in use Chromebooks could run the average steam game, and wether it means that OEMs start caring about graphics for Chromebooks

Gaming on the GNU/Linux operating system.
