Here’s what he wrote on FriendFeed:
ChromeOS has no purpose that isn’t better served by Android
(perhaps with a few mods to support a non-touch display).
I was thinking, “is this too obvious to even state?”, but then
I see people taking ChromeOS seriously, and Google is even
shipping devices for some reason.
I’ve had this thought ever since Chrome OS was announced. The logic is: if everything in Chrome OS is a WebKit browser view, and Android has a good WebKit browser, then isn’t Android capable of everything Chrome OS is, but with the added goodness of native apps? I’m not saying that’s right. And these Cr-48 prototypes seem to be getting decent reviews.
I’m just saying, if I quit every app on my MacBook other than Chrome and ran it full-screen, I’d be miserable.
