Recently got wind of an interesting application.  A Web Based OS if you're wondering.

It's called EyeOS, and can be found at http://www.eyeos.org/ make sure you have a fast'ish connection when you're actually testing it out.

I figure Google would do good to employ something on these lines for its own OS sometime in the future.  There've been a lot of tongues wagging in regard to this.  Let's see what gives.  :o)

Have fun, and enjoy yourselves.  :o)

I am really surprised how CISCO folks have not sued these guys for having a misleading name when compared to their IOS ! :)

If this could happen and MS folks could do that then how come these guys are spared till now ! ;)

Neways cool stuff!


PS: Browser has come a loooong way as an enabler !

Ah.... Point well to note.

In fact, I remember the guys at Sony jiggling a small ruckus over the fact of the music band Iio (of rapture fame). They had initially planned on calling themselves Vaiio but since that was (apparently) too similar to Sony's registered trademark of Vaio, they had to change it. Consequently, they dropped the Va and stayed with Iio. :)

I'm sure CISCO is gonna come down on these guys soon enough.... In the meantime, I guess EyeOS will stay with the name for as long as it can.

If CISCO comes crashing down on EyeOS, there's gonna be enough media coverage to bring visitors and exposure to EyeOS. Too good an offer to 'comply' with CISCO easy. :o)

SAP has a similar browser application, but it's not half as well integrated as EyeOS. As I mentioned in my post, I think Googles Online-OS will follow along these lines. Who knows, Google just might decide to acquire these guys FWIW. :o)

eyeOS badly slow actually
I saw another one "web os", Grafeio (http://www.grafeiolive.com) and seems it works way faster than eyeOS, but still has these draggable windows and whatever...

Re: eyeOS badly slow actually
It's not really all that slow. As it's a web application, the speed depends, to a considerable extent, on the user-end downlink speed.

However, you're right. Compared to the last time I tried out EyeOS, it has slowed down. I think their servers are having trouble with the balancing user load. More the number of users accesing a page, the slower it gets.... I'll check out webOS in a while, thanks for the link!

Re: eyeOS badly slow actually
Guys, just to let you know, Grafeio as you seen these days will not be available anymore, i move into Adobe Flex platform now. After i finish with the "core", like window manager, new desktop and some other bits, i will publish tips and hints about how to make your own "applications".

Grafeio this time will be skinnable and have "personalization services" running in order to maintain your personal preferences, like UI style, background and tons of other information.

Access to Grafeio will be provided on non-commercial basis, only exclusion i can see is when some application developers will charge something for their own applications, kind of "software as service" subscription.

If you have any questions or comments, you can mail me or gtalk me on same address: info[**at**]skitsanos[**dot**]com.

Re: Preved

I had to visit your journal before I could figure out what 'preved' meant. :o)

I'm been using the net regularly for the past 12 years now, and I have never heard that term before. :)
