Google "We had a lot of internal discussion on this, and have concluded that it's more Android than ChromeOS. To be specific, it's actually a modified Google TV release, but with all of the Bionic/Dalvik stripped out and replaced with a single binary for Chromecast. Since the Marvell DE3005 SOC running this is a single core variant of the 88DE3100, most of the Google TV code was reused. So, although it's not going to let you install an APK or anything, its origins: the bootloader, kernel, init scripts, binaries, are all from the Google TV." This thing just keeps getting more awesome.

Samsung are busy building an "Android of TVs" and SmartTV are selling out here in Spain and the country is in a massive recession.

I dunno how relevant this will be once Samsung are making most of the phone and most of the TVs and are now having their own dev conferences.
