About three months ago I spoke about the new Google operating system called gOS Cloud. No joke! If you don’t believe me and you want to look for yourself, here is the article. gOS Cloud is a fully developed operating system which “lives” in the Internet. As a matter of fact, it boots from your favorite browsers and contains almost all the most important tools you have on your Windows/Mac/Linux. Of course, all the documents you write there will be saved in some remote server on the other side of the world, with the side-option to save it locally. If you have’t fully understood the meaning of what I said just image to be able to reach your personal operating system wherever you are and from whatever computer you use! That’s gOS. Recently a  Swedish company called Cloudo and composed of a team of 5 men  has developed the Google operating system further, to offer you a free, fully, virtual operating system which has nothing to envy to the one you are using right now!

Cloudo is a real operating system offering you all the tools you have in your computer. The user interface is quite stylish and captivating. I like it! Here is a list of its most important tools:

  • Application Manager: an easy platform to install whatever applications you wish.
  • Textpad: a very limited text editor, all in all similar to Notepad.
  • CHamp: an easy to use audio player which reminds me of WinAmp.
  • Media Player: a simple player to play your videos.
  • Calendar: keep track of your appointments.
  • Weather widget: keep an eye on the weather while working.
  • RSS reader: read your favorite news directly on your desktop.
  • Google Maps.
  • Games: Iceman, Gomoku, Othello, Connect Four, MineSweeper, Snake, Sudoku
  • Slideshow.

    this is very intersting becuase that is different

    Well, under this point of view yes, but I also think that in a near future computers won’t have a real operating system, but rather a kind of basic, hosting application able to run different “web programs”. Just think of the Web 2.0. There are already plenty of applications out there: from online photo editors to world-like applications, and now even online operating systems. Wouldn’t be nice to grab this stuff and put it in your computer? And, if after a couple of days you are bored by them, you will be able to change them with something different or better! I see all this as a possible future and all the clues I see around make me believe that it’s not that far!

    Cloudo sounds great for cellphones and Blackberry. But it would be ridiculous to use that rather than the Windows installed on your laptop or desktop computers.
