I would call it an "Operating Environment", kind of like Windows 3.x relative to DOS, but accessible from anywhere you have a browser and broadband internet. Actually a powerful tool from what I've seen of it.

I thought exactly the same yesterday when watching the slides from the "Open Source Innovations on the Cutting Edge" article.

As I intended to post a comment, I wrote a few notes down in a notebook at work... I wrote:
- Alchemy, debatable
- Bespin, definitely
- Bitcoin, ?? didn't understand
- EyeOS, is anything an OS now ?
- KSplice, wow!
- KDE Social Desktop, useless

Given the level of the "innovations", most probably, I didn't see the seventh item/slide/innovative product.

Those who are all about social networks may be shocked by my "useless" grading of KDE SD: it's because I'm all against social networks; I have a youtube account and a myspace account because I needed one to follow some people's channels, that's about as far as I'm willing to go wrt "social".
