@mike I use a similar DIY "seamless VM" approach for running Skype for Business and MS Office 365 on Linux. I have a Virtual Box launcher that immediately loads up a debloated Win 10 (LOL yeah... I am going to hell for "violating copyright" according to MS) VM with Office and Skype installed. The VirtualBox extensions allows seamless window resizing, drag and drop of files and shared clipboard with the VM. Anyway, lets hope any Parallels-Chrome thing flows down to help Linux proper as well.
