For business that for major part already use, in one or another way, microsoft tech, this is a natural choice, to reduce costs of maintanance. You get RDP and office preinstalled. Whatever googlers says, people and especially business prefer persistancy. You soon or later will need to save data on disk, and read from it. Not counting business that will simply refuse publish there data on the cloud for privacy concerns: lawers, erp data, accountants, hospitals, farmacy, banking, finance... I would trully love desktop os developed and maintained by google, and not some "chromy" stuff, just to make you to log into their domain so get even more money. Hope that my intuition that android and chomebook will merge in the future, even if google now actively refuses that idea, will eventually happen. That would be cool to see.
