Google's CEO Eric Schmidt has some big dreams. The way he sees it, there hasn't been a successful new OS in 20 years. Windows dominates the arena, with OSX pulling in a (very) distant second place. TechRadar reports that Schmidt intends to make Chrome OS the first successful new platform of the new millennium.

Schmidt states that the price point for Chrome OS devices will stay between $300-$400. He hopes to see mobile carriers bundling Chrome OS gadgets together with contracts. Right now they are working on delivering the fullest software experience with Chrome OS possible. Google has been dog-fooding Chrome in order to find the areas it is weak and seal in those gaps.
