Default Chromecast-based ROM for thin client possible?

I have an old HP Thin Client here and it is virtually worthless (I have run a few distros on it from USB, but minimalist) and was thinking that it might make a great streaming device. (It isn't ARM unfortunately, it is an x86 AMD proc...)

Is there any Chromecast derivatives (or even distros) that would allow for this to be used like a Chromecast?

Can it run desktop Chrome browser? If so, you could use CR Cast extension or LeapCast to make it function like a Chromecast. See FAQ Part 1, 1.e
Note that both of those may need updates to support new apps built on the just-released SDK. Not sure.

Maybe bluestack for Windows and cheap cast.
