Recent reports suggested that Google would be folding its Chrome OS into Android, creating one mobile operating system. But the man in charge of the Android and Chrome operating systems went on Twitter to dispel the rumour:
There’s a ton of momentum for Chromebooks and we are very committed to Chrome OS. I just bought two for my kids for schoolwork!

Indeed, it’s hard to argue that Chrome OS has been a total failure. As far as low-cost systems go, Chromebooks are very good options.
Of course, “we are very committed to Chrome OS” could be code for “we are very committed to rolling Chrome OS into Android” or “Please buy all of the remaining stock of Chromebooks out there. please!” [The Verge]
