Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Good OS's Cloud system integrates a compressed version of the
Linux operating system with the company's homegrown Web browser.
From within the browser, users can launch desktop applications such
as spreadsheets or games, or access lighter Web services -- like
Google Apps or Yahoo mail.
"The system also features a tab that will launch Microsoft's
Windows XP operating system.
"At the Netbook World Summit in Paris this week, Good OS showed
off Cloud riding on its new Gigabyte Touch-Screen Netbook. "With
Cloud, Gigabyte Netbooks will power on to the Internet in seconds
while still supporting killer applications together with Windows
XP," said a company spokesman."
