Android applications work just like desktop, it's not like chromebook at all.

You install apk files (which are analogous to deb, rpm, exe, msi, etc) and they run on your computer. They aren't web sites, even though they can connect to web services. Obviously the form factor is different, but Android is more like a desktop system than Chromebooks are.

I have yet to meet someone who wants a Chromebook.

Why hasn't Google given Microsoft the coup de grace and actively developed some desktop/laptop distro ala Chromebook but without the stupid "web only" focus?

If that had built a Chromebook that wasn't built on a stupid fucking premise they'd already own the market and Microsoft would be carved up ready for sale to Mitt Romney's friends.
