    So far, ChromeOS is an unmitigated business failure. For an OS that is marginally more than a web browser, it has gained 0.02% of the world wid web page views. This is since first hardware shipped in December 2010 (30 months ago).

    So 2 out of every 10,000 page views come from ChrimeOS. Sad.

    I must admit that I was a bit sceptical when the Pixel was announced. Google has enough work convincing people to buy into the whole Chromebook concept even with low-cost versions, let alone at Pixel's price.

    On the other hand, the Pixel does look pretty cool. And I do think that Chromebooks in general have their place in the market, especially as a second home device. Most people spend a lot of their time on the Internet anyway, and there are more and more web apps out there.

    For those that are considering Chromebooks but still need to access Windows applications, they can look at Ericom AccessNow, an HTML5 RDP client that enables Chromebook users to connect to Terminal Server or VDI virtual desktops, and run Windows applications or even full desktops in a browser tab.
