Web Based Operating Systems:Take Your Desktop Inside Your Browser


rp_proEver wondered your desktop inside your browser.A full fledged operating system inside the browser.What if you could work with your files and documents anywhere around the world.A beautiful concept called web-based operating systems makes this possible.you just need to sign up and you are done,and just access the desktop anywhere.Below are some of the most popular web based operating systems.
A good place to start in your discovery of Web-based operating systems is eyeOS  , which is free, open source, and very easy to sign up for. There’s no need to install anything to use eyeOS. Simply sign up with a user name and password to create anaccount, and from that point forward, you have an operating system on the Web, accessible from any browser. eyeOS creates space on its servers to store your operating system settings and any files you create
This is how it looks

G.ho.st is in some ways even more full-featured and certainly more colourful – than eyeOS. After you sign up, for free, G.ho.st carves out an impressive 5 gigabytes of file storage on its servers for you, and it creates your very own G.ho.st Mail e-Mail account, with 3 gigabytes of storage. Like eyeOS, there’s nothing to install. Once you sign up, you’ll receive a confirmation e-Mail message. Click the activation link inside, and you’re ready to go

Desktop Two is a java-based Web operating system that’s the quickest of all to set up and get going. After a brief sign-up routine, the desktop loads, and you’re ready to start exploring. Desktop Two offers more applications that allow users to create their own presence on the Web than the other major Web operating systems. Along with a word processor and e-mail program, Desktop Two provides a Web site editor and a blogging programme
cmyos.com offers a free online operating system/desktop for all users through its open source collaborative network: cmynetworks. Through the open source community, cmyosworks to produce rich applications that are enhance the online experience of developersand browsers alike
