Web Operating Systems: The Options You should Consider

Posted in Freebies • Posted on 11 Comments

Showcase of Web Operating SystemsMost of us have heard of WebOS or Web Operating Systems and most of us just don’t know what it is. Well, WebOS and Web operating system are terms that describe network services for internet scale distributed computing. However, the terms WebOS and Web operating system have been employed more broadly and with far greater popularity in the context of “the web as in HTTP”, and for many meanings ranging from singular systems to collections of systems. Common to uses for collections of systems, a Web operating system  is distinct from Internet operating systems in that it is independent of the traditional individual computer operating system. This conception of the system reflects an evolution of research in the field of operating systems. I compiled 16 WebOS apps to know what they are and to experience operation systems in your browser.

    I’ve been reading a lot about cloud computing lately, and even though it has become an overused term, just like the term web 2.0, the cloud is the future of computing whether we like it or not.

    Anyway, I’ve tried cloudo and eyeOS so far, but I haven’t heard about these other web OS’s, so your article comes in just the right time for me.

    Cheers mate :)

    I’m a happy EyeOS user, I find it’s useful and very light.
    Most of all I can operate thru EyeOS even when far from my “home” position and it’s more easier to develop all the apps I need.
