Prediction: ChromeOS will be killed next year (or “merged” with Android)
People don’t get it — I didn’t at first. Chrome OS is there to replace Windows XP for hospitals, municipalities, large corporations, clothing shops for inventory management, gyms, etc. Anywhere browser-based apps only are used, Chrome OS is going to be huge.
Sure, we’ll see Chrome on Android, but it’s becoming increasingly clear to me that Chrome OS is to Chrome what XBMC Live is to XBMC. It’s Chrome plus a wafer thin client, for the markets that need just that. Which is a lot of markets.
