An anonymous reader writes “Former Google employee, Gmail creator, and FriendFeed founder Paul Buchheit has come right out and said what many people are thinking (or hoping for). On his FriendFeed page, Buchheit made a post titled ‘Prediction: ChromeOS will be killed next year (or “merged” with Android).’ In it, he bluntly says that Google’s netbook-centric Chrome OS is as good as dead. ‘Yeah, 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,’ Buchheit writes. ‘Because ChromeOS has no purpose that isn’t better served by Android (perhaps with a few mods to support a non-touch display).’”
