Does Google make hardware just so nobody buys it?

Re: Why does ChromeOS still exist? It should have just been replaced with android.

I was initially torn between running Chrome OS (as CloudReady or Chromium OS) or Android-x86 on a laptop/tablet convertible.

But there's the problem of the fact that Chrome OS is not even ready for un-slurpage (or is it de-slurpification?)

And the fact that Chrome OS is designed with the internet in mind. What if I do most of my work offline?

And the fact that Android (especially as Android-x86) is way closer to Linux that Chrome OS. You can run Linux in a chroot under Android-x86, and even start a X server, but with Chrome OS, you need to use crouton, which is not native enough.
