"Eazel, the firm that hopes to make Linux the easiest computer
operating system to use, says it expects to release the first
version of its desktop application, Nautilus, and related Web
services by the end of this year...."
"Eazel doesn't charge for its client software, but by year's end
it will charge for various Net-based services that are tightly

storage for files and a service that automatically senses what
kinds software your computer has and offers to provide
"Sure, it sounds like a simple concept, but Eazel's service
is technically elegant. Rather than just checking for applications
that have newer versions available, the Eazel online service takes
the computer's context into account. That is, it weighs each
software program's dependencies on one another, and updates only
when the renewal of one application won't clobber another."
