lol, you can't answer the question like that -- Google abandons everything, yada, yada, why bother -- on a retro-computing forum "documenting" hardware that allows decades aged software to run (theoretic) indefinitely. C'mon, man, not a fair fight comparing your mission against the global tech market seducing Millennials.
And if that targeted Killed By Google post isn't coming from an Apple bias trolling camp, haha, keep in mind that iOS and Android OS updates technically support devices for only four or more years; and that certain apps – and OS updates themselves – can prove too power-hungry for previous years' specs.
It's 2020, 8 more released the start of this year alone... just look at the long tail, sorted by release date, and notice you won't find an EOL until 2014 -- https://www.chromium.org/chromium-os/developer-information-for-chrome-os-devices
Let's loop back to poster's original question: if the user's "need" is really there, you're better off running it from Chrome's Linux container -- yeah, something that isn't killed (yet) because running a local VS Code / Node.js developer stack is still "really worthwhile".
