Does Google make hardware just so nobody buys it?

Re: Do we care anymore?

Someone probably just hoped in cheap hardware subsidized by Google... ChromeOS is exactly what Linux is not.

And remember, as long as Google runs most stuff on its own servers, it can use GPL software at will without giving anything back. Only what is "distributed" falls under the GPL "copyleft" clauses... so, maybe, Linux punters chose the wrong ally.
