Well, what would be Google’s official statement? I think as a comment mentions, the Chrome OS is the one for PC’s. Netbooks actually. But… haven’t hear much about it. I remember it was making a big buzz about a year a go but looks like Android is keeping Google engineers busy. And… is fragmentation bad? Linux got all fragmented didn’t it? I think is a matter of time to hear about a fragmentation from Android, new distro’s and the like. Anyway, looks like someone in the group actually says this fragmentation isn’t happening as Huang’s intentions as they have submitted changes to the ASOP group and some have been accepted. Interesting, we’ll soon have notebooks with Icecream on top.

Android OS, very popular in China now. Many projects start to choose android as the first option OS. I focus on embedded linux, as I know, the android is based on linux kernel, so i wonder why it is better than linux. If you want to use android, you must be familiar with Java language. It is boring for me, only have interest on C,so i still use linux to develop new embedded projects. Of course, not phone and tablet.

With open source, it is likely for a 1 company (Intel) to make a large contribution to an effort and another company (AMD) to take advantage of their work. That's the nature of the beast. It sort of sounds like Intel is whining...

"Huang’s non-authorized version has not been submitted to Google for integration into the wider Android open source effort, which has raised concern that it could cause fragmentation." Whoever said this is totally misleading. Chih-wei has tried very hard to summit any of our changes to the ASOP and many of them have been accepted by the ASOP.

Because Google has it's Chrome OS for notebook form factors. Android is supposed to be for mobile Internet Devices only. Also, a lot of its functionality is a bit redundant without touchscreen.
