Google Andy Rubin, who created Android and has led its development both at Android Inc. and later at Google, has decided to step down as the big Android boss at Google. Having created the world's "most-used mobile operating system", as Google CEO Larry Page refers to it, I'd say his stint has been successful. Interestingly enough, he will be succeeded by Sundar Pichai - Chrome OS boss. Yes.

Actually it has the fastest ARM processor available for end user market. And has no moving parts, so no fans, no HDD.


And the graphics card is a joke, a no no for me.

I installed desktop Linux on it.

Operating systems are free to download and install remember ? ;-)


If I don't want to use a system with the OS it is being sold, why bother to give the company any money?

I'm paying for the hardware of course, it is more than cheap enough that I doubt that anyone is making any money on the OS of a Chromebook.
