Linux Mint Cinnamon is great and almost mimics Chrome OS

the pros of a fully operational OS are huge

Chrome OS lacks fully operational OS - therefore
a Chromium build (one that would default to the Chromium (Open Source) browser to mimic Chrome OS) would be a great benefit.

The second step would be to get this ISO to be able to install dual boot or overwrite existing chromebooks.

This would give Chromebook users a powerful OS

Would recommend using the WPS office instead, it much more Windows friendly. Also have some other default apps and tools on it pre-installed.

If it could integrate google docs and drive, even better.

The last step would be to partner with Chromebook vendors, to offer a mint version.

Linuxmint is a distro based on ubuntu and debian that offers usability and flexibility to a wide usergroup. The project has limited resources and developing a custom version based on a different base for a small number of potential users would not be an efficient use of those resources imo.

This is in my opinion not something that mint should focus on
