Why is EyeOS not an operating system?

Why exactly would EyeOS not be considered an operating system? What is EyeOS missing that ChromeOS possesses? In fact I would say that EyeOS is more feature complete in some ways than ChromeOS is from a more conventional line of thinking as to what an OS should be.

Is there any particular reason that you couldn't just run this as your base operating system? I mean it is running on top of a LAMP stack like other operating systems do. I don't see why someone couldn't make this boot up as their primary OS with a little work. You might not want to do so, but if it can be done with ChromeOS then surely it could also be done with this system.
