    I think that is referring to the hardware that chromebooks use
    Laptop: ASUS A54C-NB91 (Storage: WD3200BEKT + MKNSSDCR60GB-DX); Desktop: Custom Build - Images included; rPi Server

    That's a very badly worded headline; it's like saying Linux has "full Windows support" because it runs on many laptops designed for Windows.

    Chrome OS != Chrome Browser

    Also, the kernel doesn't support Chrome OS, it supports the hardware of the Chrome OS machines. In other words, they put more hardware support in the kernel, which is something that they do in every release. Unless you have a Chrome OS machine and you want to put Linux on it, then this will not affect you in any way or whatsoever.

    Also, I thought Chrome OS was just modified Linux anyway.
