Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Perhaps the most compelling part of Preview Release 2 (PR2) of
the Eazel environment are the two services woven into the graphical
shell that can access back-end services."
"The first of these tools, Software Catalog, allows desktop
users to install software over the Web from a Linux library with
one click of the mouse. The second, Eazel Online Storage, makes it
easy for desktop users to store files on the Web and share them
remotely using just a browser."
"Over time, what we can do with these services is intelligently
look at what is on your desktop and decide whether it is good thing
or a bad thing for you to load a piece of software from the Web,"
Croll said. "If you are missing something you need to run that
software, the system can go out and find it so you can load it,"
"Company officials believe Linux users cannot live on snappy
graphical interfaces alone. It is the coupling of the interface
with smooth access to back-end services that will prove to be its
major contribution to help root Linux on the desktop."
