    So has anyone else heard rumors about Google coming out with a new web-based OS??? That'll be sweet......

    http://www.kottke.org/04/04/google-operating-system

    Word on the net is that it's gonna be a server-side OS......meaning users log onto the server and run apps there!!!! It'll be crazy.....I think what google might end up doing is running it like a subscription service with free high-speed internet.
    Also, the google-browser(apparently in process also), based on Mozilla will not only serve as a Browser but eventually will be the portal to the OS.

    If anyone has any more news/rumors about this post here!!!!!

    that is one heck of a stupid idea by google ... if they are realy serious ...

    it is always the best to let the users have their own systems ...
    i have worked on dumb terminals on AIX network (for uninitiated AIX is IBM version of Unix) ...
    it was pain in the ass ... working .. .and remember i was on 100 Mbps LAN ...
    fcukin Internet speed will be pricky 1 Mbps MAX (not possible in India though) ...
    what do u expect ? ... how will your comp run?
    that too since u dont have OS on your comp ... u are a slave ...
    i for once would say this is absurd idea ...

    if u like dumb terminals ... it is better to give control of server to your company's sys ad than to a 3rd party like google ...

    It'll require a high speed broadband and unlimited bandwidth! This is a crazy idea!

    Crazy it is, but if implemented in a right way, can work wonders for sure, think about not storing n installing all the softwares on yr own system. All the things that u wanna use wud be already available on the remote OS. True it would need high speed n it seems really far fetched,........................................ but hey who expected a mini-messenger with just 900kb setup untill it was released?

    ^ it is truly mini ... very basic and stripped down ...

    i remember using ytalk in unix ... that was much better ... and i guess under 100 KB in size (ahh well i dunno really - everything comes along with Unixes) ...

    The GooOS idea is still tooo rough n vague to comment actually.

    I like google talk for the voice clarity though!
