A web OS

Many years back, I was ecstatic when Desktop.com was released. It offered the first look at a web based Operating System. Desktop was great as it had little apps to built up a whole web based OS. About 2 years down the road, the company and site just vanished into thin air. The domain had changed hands and it’s just a browser toolbar now.

To let you understand exactly what I’m talking about, check out a similiar idea called YouOS. I must say that it’s not as complete as DeskTop, but there’s a good future for this project. The only thing I don’t understand is why they have a browser within the app. An email client would proof more useful.

Enjoy and tell me what you think :)
