Sounds a bit off-colour.

What happened to ChomeOS?

Google is building a new operating system for embedded devices.

Consigned to the scrap heap of history.... You would have thought by now, with all the power of Google that we would all be running GoogleOS.

https://9to5mac.com/2016/05/19/idc-chromebook-sales-mac-q1-us-education/

Shipments of Chromebooks outpaced Macs in the US for the first time in Q1 2016, that’s according to data from IDC shared during a session at Google’s I/O developer conference today.

IDC in April estimated Apple sold around 1.8 million Macs, giving it around 13% market share and accounting for a 5.6% increase year over year. That put Apple in the fourth position for PC sales in the US (and worldwide) behind Lenovo, HP, and Dell, but at the time IDC*didn’t break out sales of Chrome OS devices versus other PC sales.
Since it’s now saying Chrome OS passed Mac OS X during the quarter, we know Chromebook manufacturers combined sold at least more than the 1.8 million it estimates Apple sold. Both of those numbers are of course estimates only as not all of the companies offer specifics on sales of Chrome OS devices versus PC sales for*devices running Windows and other operating systems.

Let's make our product easy to use, we will focus on the user and all else will follow and let's take every single cent we EVER spent on ux and usability and throw it down the drain by using a name that nobody will ever remember, let alone be able to spell.

But oh, wait, we've got auto-suggest. Phewsha (Did you mean Fuchsia?) - You will remember next time, right? And tonight when you're at that party, remember to tell everybody about this name you will still not be able to remember or even pronounce.... dont forget!!!!!

Oh wait, we'll remind you with our Google Cards on Android or pin it in your Inbox.

Man, you are sorted... now......... if you could only remember that name again.....
