gOS’s New Cloud Operating System Looks Awesome

In the following video, the folks from Eee PC (German) give us their first impression of gOS’s new Cloud OS, which should be launched in January 2009, just in time for the next CES tradeshow. Check it out, it looks awesome.

Basically, the only thing that gOS does is to boot directly into a Chrome-like interface, giving quick access to all Google services in a convenient application dock located at the bottom of the screen. This is absolutely perfect for either people who are technically-challenged (like my parents), or to those who only need their computer to access the Internet, and nothing else.

  1. Oh, and have you seen how fast this thing boots and shuts down? WOW.. :)

    Kind of understandable though since there's not much to load…

  3. Why can’t they just put those cool buttons on the bottom of the google search page? If you have gears installed you can already work offline and if you have access to the internet all you really need is your google stuff easily accessible.

  5. I recently bought a netbook (Asus EEE) myself. Still haven’t gotten around to writing a review of it….
    I have experienced just how quickly that 4GB fills up when I tried to install my ‘default suite’ of applications. Since I’ve uploaded most of my computing to the Google Cloud already, this would have been a much better option than installing XP like I did.

  7. Thanks to your article, I installed gOS “Google Gadgets” on one of my boxes and I was flat out amazed. Easily the least painful Linux distro I’ve ever worked with. What I’ve been looking for. And the tool bar at the bottom with the google stuff is easily configurable to be what you want.
