Internet & Networking "While we're waiting for Google to launch its own Google OS (if the rumours are true, of course), I've checked out 10 web operating systems and what they can do. Not many of them feel like finished and fully usable products, but there are some true gems among them. Admit it: you didn't think there were that many WebOSes around, did you?" More here.

Why this obsession with implementing a window manager in JavaScript? Otherwise these so called "Web OSes" offer the same applications as the Google Web applications. Where is the advantage over Web applications that open in their own browser window? I'd rather have my own OS manage the windows rather a JavaScript window manager.
