The Sixth Flag is a highly-awarded company that has just announced a new desktop product that allows Windows programs to run in a secure Google Chrome OS environment. Thanks to desktop.tsf, users of both Chromebook portables and Chromebox desktop computers can enjoy all the features provided by Microsoft's Windows, but without most of the problems Windows users usually encounter.

ZDNet's Ken Hess talked to Pete Kofod, CEO of The Sixth Flag, at the DataCenter Converged Internet Conference in San Francisco earlier this week. He received a demo of this new Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) product that ran without problems on his Acer Chromebook 720p, also viewing the management portal that allows easy setup of user and group permissions, access rights to apps, custom desktop images, and more.

The Sixth Flag desktop.tsf product aims global teams and organizations in need of remote desktop management solutions, so home users may not enjoy Windows apps on their Chrome OS-powered devices anytime soon. Nevertheless, since they managed to bring Windows apps to Chrome OS (in a matter of speaking), it is probably just a matter of time until Google brings this feature to its Linux-based operating system.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
