Report: Acer Launching Chrome OS Netbook

Digitimes today cites industry sources who say Acer has been planning since the summer a netbook running Google's Chrome OS and plans to launch the mini notebook in the second half of 2010.

The report is one of the first to surface about a vendor's plans to produce a netbook running solely on Chrome OS. Digitimes goes on to say that Acer chairman JT Wang also expressed his confidence that the company will be the first vendor to launch Chrome-based netbook in the market during a recent interview with Digitimes.

    Have you even read what Chrome OS is? I don't want to get into a debate about whether or not the completley internet focused OS is a good path, but even Google will admit that Chrome OS is not meant to compete with Microsoft Windows. This OS is geared towards a niche market which wouldn't threaten Windows at all.

    I doubt there will be much of a market for that particular OS.
