Acer has given the Google Chrome operating system the thumbs up and plans to jack it under the bonnet of a netbook, which the company has been developing since mid-2009 in the second half of 2010.

Digitimes quotes Acer chairman JT Wang saying he expects to be the first vendor to launch Chrome-based netbook in the market. Acer is a long term backer of Google Operating systems. It was the first top-tier vendor to launch a Google Android-based netbook in the market.

However Acer's enthusiasm is a little strange. Its Android netbook was shunned by users and only slightly sniffed at. Wang does not seem to have let that worry him in his quest to wean the outfit away from its dependance on Windows operating systems.
