Google Recommends Virtualization for Legacy E-Learning Apps

Google is pushing Chromebook for education environments and recommends virtualization/remote desktop approaches for the following:

-Thick client apps like Microsoft Office

-Web pages that require older or Microsoft-only technologies (e.g. require Internet Explorer)

-Support for plugins other than Flash (e.g. Java plugins, Silverlight, etc.) for web apps such as Aleks, Blackboard, and Pearson
