Chrome OS Tablets can run Linux, making the dream of OTG GNU/linux a reality. The tablet in question runs an OP1 arm processor, you could easily build a smaller tablet with Chrome OS. I hope a 7", 7.9", or 8" chrome os tablet with stylus comes out.

It's run by Google's OS. That's not a dream by any sane standard.

Dream for some. (Overly surveilled) nightmare for others.

In the end, the interoperability might end up being a gateway into proper Linux if only the ****ing software was more compelling than the freedom.

You can strip out the surveillance components just like you could on Ubuntu.

There's a difference here. On Ubuntu, the operating system was still functional without the tacked-on surveillance. If you strip out the surveillance from Google's offerings, they're barely functional at best.

Also Chrome OS uses linux Drivers, so you could install other Linux distros on Chrome os devices.

Chrome OS is just a derivative of Gentoo Linux. However it's lacked the ability to install regular applications, but due to it being Linux, Crouton enables running Linux distros in a container. The drivers should be the same as a regular linux distro.

I do believe, that eventually Chrome os will replace android all together. We will have Chrome os TVs, smartwatches, in vehicle, smartphones, and so forth. Chrome os will achieve what Ubuntu, Tizen, Meego and Sailfish have yet to achieve, a true linux os for every device.
