"Another interesting point is Kogan's choice of operating
system: the Ubuntu-based gOS.
""By using the gOS operating system, we are bringing our
customers one step closer to cloud computing. The operating system
facilitates easy access to a number of Google services, as well as
a host of easy to use, powerful open source programs," said
""Most importantly, gOS is extremely easy to use. It's a very
aesthetically pleasing, powerful, intuitive, and fast operating
system. One thing we're hoping to do is make Linux less daunting
for everyone, including casual computer users."
"gOS includes Firefox, Open Office, and WINE (which allows the
use of some Windows applications), and handles Google Gadgets."
