Death to the Desktop! Long Live the Cloud! 

,----[ Quote ]
| I have a feeling that the desktop operating 
| system as we know it is on its last leg. The 
| reason I make such a bold statement is that 
| cloud computing will replace our fat, 
| bloated, virus-riddled, failure-prone desktop 
| with something far more agile and elegant: A 
| lightweight browser-based system. This sounds 
| like good news to me. I've waited for a 
| server-centric world for several years now 
| and the time is almost upon us. In this brave 
| new cloud world, you'll have access to all of 
| your documents, music, data, pictures and 
| applications regardless of the device in your 
| hands.


IBM Backs an OS for the 'Private Cloud'

,----[ Quote ]
| An open-source Web-based operating system 
| called eyeOS is getting a big boost from IBM. 
| The computer giant has begun selling high-end 
| mainframe servers with eyeOS pre-installed, 
| hoping the operating system will entice 
| customers who are hesitant about using cloud 
| computing.



eyeOS and IBM â Working together

,----[ Quote ]
| Weâre happy to present to the eyeOS community
| the result of more than six months of work
| together with the great IBM US team, where
| eyeOS will be the Sample Workload of the new
| System Z serie Solution Edition for Cloud
| Computing. System Z is the IBM brand used to
| produce their mainframe servers, used
| worldwide by governments, big companies and
| thousands of organizations.


eyeOS: Your Own Private Linux Cloud that You Control (part 2)

| Don't get too used to eyeOS. Version 2.0 will have a
| much different look and enhanced features. The release
| is already set for January 1st, 2010. As their blog
| says, it will feature a new desktop, applications,
| filesystem; pretty much everything.


eyeOS Takes the Operating System Into the Cloud

,----[ Quote ]
| With the rising popularity of cloud computing, entire operating systems
| designed to work in the cloud should come as no surprise. Indeed, virtual
| computing environments are becoming so predominate that some suspect Google's
| development of the Chrome browser -- and more recently the Chrome operating
| system -- is nothing more than cloud computing in disguise.


First Look: eyeOS 1.8.5 - A first look in the cloud

,----[ Quote ]
| In the past, having your head in the clouds was generally regarded as a bad
| thing. Nowadays, everybody wants to have their share of The Cloud. Having all
| your digital stuff somewhere on a server, ready to be accessed from virtually
| anywhere, is bliss for some and an absolute nightmare for others. While I
| know the fact that my files will never be completely safe in the cloud, I
| also know that they aren't completely safe on a local Internet-connected
| computer either, so I am ready to embrace (within some limits) the Cloud.

| The best part is that you'll be able to save your documents not only in
| eyeOS' format but also either as .doc (Microsoft Word's format) or as .odt
| (Open Document Text).


Create Your Own Cloud Operating System With EyeOS




,----[ Quote ]
| In episode 2x14 of The Bad Apples Linux Cast, I talked about all manners of
| portable operating systems, including web-based, shell accounts, and usb
| drive OS's. One of the web-based systems was eyeOS (eyeos.info for demo) and
| I remember being impressed and intrigued but a little underwhelmed by
| performance.
| Enter threethirty, a fellow host of Linux Cranks and an all-around
| adventurous guy. One weekend he decides to learn how to set up a server, and
| then all week long he's loading up all kinds of insanely cool web services
| for everyone to fool around with. He put opengoo (online office suite) on his
| server, and then eyeOS.


The eyeOS: A Review

,----[ Quote ]
| The eyeOS has been making ripples among enthusiasts of âcloudâ computing. It
| intends to serve as an Operating System which can be accessed anywhere
| through a web browser. One just has to install the eyeOS on to one's web
| server or use the web hosting solution provided by the vendors themselves. On
| top of that, it is one of the first open source offerings on the cloud
| (Google, even though running on open source components, is in itself
| proprietary).


The Office Revolution, in eyeOS 1.3

,----[ Quote ]
| This will be possible thanks to some hard work on the great OpenOffice
| platform, that will provide, in the server where eyeOS is installed,
| conversions between lots of formats to the eyeOS native ones trought some
| macros that will connect eyeOS with OpenOffice framework.


What is eyeOS?

,----[ Quote ]
| eyeOS is an Open Source Web Desktop Environment, commonly known as
| Web Operating System (Web OS) or Web Office. eyeOS is Open Source
| Software, and can be downloaded or used trought the official eyeOS
| server. The basic System comes with some office and PIM applications,
| and the complete eyeOS software database can be found at eyeApps.org and
| in the public server.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
