The guy who created Gmail predicts that ChromeOS will be killed next year RT @mike_elgan
Why would you buy a ChromeOS tablet when you could just buy an Android tablet. So what, you run it on a netbook? Who wants one of those?
Patrick Kajirian @pkajirian
Has anyone considered dual booting #chromeOS as a secondary OS? It seems like an ideal alternative when you need access web apps on the fly.
Jeff Kirvin @jeffkirvin
I'm finding it absurdly easy to work entirely in Chrome. If I can't get ChromeOS to work on my ancient netbook, may have to install Linux.

So... will the ChromeOS be available for download, or will we have to buy a special Chrome notebook? (I mean ChromeOS not ChromiumOS)

Maybe Android emerged from Chrome. RT @paultoo: Prediction: ChromeOS will be killed next year (or "merged" with Android)

People talking about the ChromeOS/Android merge as early as next year are nuts IMO. UNLESS there's dual boot ChromeOS & Android honeycomb+

I think something like ChromeOS would be great for companies more than consumers. In the sense of controlling data.
Kyle Dadbod @kylebubp
Why do we need ChromeOS when we have Android? I'd like a good explanation.

People seem to keep forgetting that ChromeOS *IS* linux...

I think it will take 2 yeas before Chrome OS is ready RT @parislemon: In Defense Of Chrome OS

I don't understand the criticism of ChromeOS. What's not to like about the browser-as-an-OS concept?

A former Google employee predicted that the company's web-based Chrome OS for netbooks would be canceled next...

Google's Chrome OS assailed as needless, dangerous by critics - Apple Insider
Techno FYI @technofyi
So... what is the point of Chrome OS? I still don't get it. How will it be used? Why wouldn't you just get a netbook? Even a iOS/Android Tab

Pre-launch Chrome OS hands-on; analysis and screenshots ... #Chrome
Rebecca Dias @vesselhead
I expected more from the ChromeOS. I demand client side caching and optional backup. Cloud = good; however, not enough
Jake Putnam @jakethegringo
The only think that will bring #ChromeOS down is people's fear of change. NOT lack of security, or usability, but just plain ignorant fear.
Tech_Walker @tech_walker
Is Google Chrome OS doomed for failure before it's release? Is it the omen of evil? Some think so ...
Eric Bruno @ericjbruno
I'm not a fan of Chrome OS, but Ballmer's criticism of Google's "dual" OS strategy shows how out of touch he is with his own company.
I predicted Chrome OS eats Android. Folks abler than I are picking the reverse
