Google's Eric Schmidt says Chrome and Android will stay separate, but more 'commonality' is on tap
Google's Eric Schmidt said today in an interview that contrary to popular rumormongering, its Chrome OS, and Android, will remain separate projects, despite Chrome's chief taking over the mobile OS in the place of Andy Rubin, who is moving to top secret projects. 

He said, however, that we might be seeing a lot more "commonality" between Chrome and Android down the road.

Google's Chairman also mentioned that selling almost half of his Google stake while the stock price is so high doesn't mean that he is leaving for a government job, as speculated. "Google is my home," he said, dispelling the rumors that the Obama administration wants to tap him for a Trade Secretary position.

Even though Chrome OS is better, Android is still the best!

I don't think Chrome OS will gain more traction anytime soon.

Why do you think that? I think that if Google or any of the makers of a Chrome OS machine would market their products more efficiently that they would see some progress. Especially with Pixel being released.

I love chrome, but again I'm on the comfort zone of Microsoft site, when it comes to desktop... You can't simply force us to choose, but I will purchase it once I got jackpot :)

I still hope for the fusion.
Chrome OS UI + Google Crome Desktop Browser + Android = Win :D
