    MS should be so very thankful that Google didn't get all their ducks in a row the first time around, and is now being forced to reset the playing field with their Project Fuchsia. If Android, which is in many ways a branding failure IMO, had somehow been a unified "Google OS" that just so happens to scale well onto Laptops and desktop PC's, Microsoft's demise in the home would have already been far more complete than it currently is. Google would now be working on the Business PC takeover angle. Instead, Google is admitting they went down the wrong road with ChromeOS/Android, and trying to unify that into the "holy grail" of OS's, after the fact. So now they'll need to retain a lot of backward compatibility, which could muddy the waters of Fuchsia somewhat, but it is still the right thing for them to do, IMO.

      Ew. No. GoogleOS? No way. Android is great and it's branding is great. I hate how much Google has been changing it's branding and design without fixing the real problems. Android Wear didn't need a rebrand. That was just as stupid as Google renaming RCS to 'Chat'. Google doesn't own RCS. Android Wear is Android!

        Android as a brand is completely tarnished as most people only associate it with its early incarnations (which were laggy and clunky) and with very inexpensive hardware. Google knows this and is trying to start fresh.
