OSNews, Generic OSes EyeOS is a free, cross-platform personal content manager system based upon the style of a desktop operating system. The base package includes the whole operating system structure and ten apps: a calendar, file manager, text editor, internal messenger, browser and calculator. EyeOS's is thought to provide a complete, scalable and free (GPL) organization and work system. Everyone can port an existing PHP app to EyeOS and create a meta-package. You can test it online here.

This is very useful for business and possibly also for home users also. It is a system for thin clients but the important point is any thin client can use it. The hardware and the OS is completely irrelevant.

If you integrate the functionality of an office suite into this you no longer need a computer - or an office.

You just give a user an account on a system like this and they can access their info anywhere there is a networked computer, you could probably even do a version for phones.

This is the sort of project that will make Microsoft obsolete.


P.S. Please turn the brightness on that green down a bit!
