We know that Android, at least in its current form, isn’t the best bet for Netbook or Notebook PCs. Google knows this as well, which is why they started development on Google Chrome OS, a web-based browser operating system. However, former Google employee and GMail creator, Paul Buchheit, has predicted that Android will eventually kill or merge with Android.

Now although this is just a prediction, it brings up an interesting point. When Google noticed that Android was being used for tablets, they started development of a tablet optimized operating system (Honeycomb). They may just do the same, or something similar, and build an optimized version of Android to be used on notebooks if Chrome OS fails to launch successfully.

What do you think about the Chrome OS as a whole? Do you think it would be better replaced by an Android-based OS? And, if you’d like to test drive the operating system for yourself, remember that we are giving away two Google Chrome Cr-48s!
