Chrome is to desktop Linux what Android is to mobile Linux

Or to put it differently. What’s different about Chrome as opposed to all of the other Linux distros out there? Consumers totally not interested in Linux netbooks at the moment as the return rate of those devices confirms. What I can see is Chrome becomes the most important Linux platform at the expense of the others much as Android has become the most important mobile linux platform. Is that something the Linux community wants to see happen? I wonder.

One response to “Chrome is to desktop Linux what Android is to mobile Linux

  1. Comparing ChromeOS to a linux distro is like comparing WebOS to Limo or Access Linux Platform or Android. They all have linux inside but each of them is a different beast …

    I would not buy a LiMo phone like the ones sold in Japan, But I lust for WebOs. I think the same distinction will remain in the minds of consumers. “Linux netbook” will not mean the same thing as a “with Google netbook”
