OSNews, Generic OSes SilveOS is a familiar-looking desktop "operating system" within a silverlight app. Just fire it up using any browser with Silverlight installed and start poking around.

In theory, and let me emphasize theory, you could do a Chrome OS type of thing ... take a barebones OS, add a web rendering engine, a Silverlight or a Flash runtime and add your "Web OS" on top.


In theory, if you put a saddle on a dog, it's now a horse. But in reality it's not. Silverlight has no: protected memory, virtual memory, filesystem support, multi-tasking. So it's not really close to being an OS.

Bad article title.
