Google seems to be taking a page from the Apple/Steve Jobs playbook. Make a desireable product. Charge a lot for it. Make it indispensible. Then lock the customer in.
Android has mindshare planet wide. There is no need for this crap. ChromeOS while getting bad press lately in google classroom is a self inflicted wound. (do no evil; billion dollar code)
I want an alternative. They all suck.
