The EyeOS Web Operating System

While browsing Digg today, I stumbled upon a link to an extremely cool presentation of a new web operating system named eyeOS. Apart from being free, EyeOS is open-sourced and can be run under any hardware, making it a great option for people on the go who do not bring their computer with them, but use the one they are provided at each location they travel to. I suggest that you take a look at it yourself. I think most of you will be pleasantly surprised by its functionalities and ease of use.

Imagine being able to sit down at any ordinary computer in an Internet cafe or public library, start up the resident web browser and access your personal desktop - along with your applications, messages, and information - with a click of your mouse button. Then, when you're done, you simply close the web browser to have all of the documents you've just worked on safely stored on your remote server, leaving nothing on the computer you've just been working on. This is the goal of the mobile desktop and operating system called eyeOS. David Bouley, 2006

Check it out.


  • Thats pretty cool.

    I saw a movie once that used this idea as part of a $100 PC (no not the one from MIT). I think it was called "How I made my first million."

    Anyone without a laptop could find this to be extremely useful.

  • This is the correct name of the movie:

    "The First $20 Million Is Always the Hardest"

    The title is a little different than what I thought but its still a good light-hearted movie. Some bash it for being a little unbelievable, but it's not that far from fact (though we are still a ways away from actually having a 3D desktop).
