    Am keen to see if this is actually going to be a useable OS for productivity (ie potential to replace Windows etc with), or if it's more of an environment simply to access stuff (i'm thinking of iPhone OS principally here).
    I'm commenting on an internet forum. Your facts hold no sway over me.

    ChromeOS will never be a full-fat OS. It's nothing more than a maximised self-hosted browser.

    Google need to knife this baby ASAP. They've already fragmented things enough with the different versions of Android in the wild.

    Agreed, and Android is more than capable of playing the thin-client game.

    Yeah, Google have delayed Google OS too long, and Android has just about taken over its market space
    -look at the tablets released with android , that should have been googleOS.

    They'd be better merging the two now, and make a proper app store too !
