gOS Takes Netbook Operating System to the Cloud, MSI Announces New Netbook

Good OS, company known for their gOS Linux system, has recently announced that Netbook owners will no longer have to wait for their devices to boot up in order to access web-based applications and services like Windows Live, Google and Yahoo. This is all due to their incredibly fast Cloud based operating system. The idea behind the Cloud (that is the actual name of the OS) is a simple one: when you need to use your netbook for tasks, then use Cloud; when you need to perform more processor rich tasks, switch to your locally installed OS. The company proposes a symbiotical relationship between the Cloud and the Windows OS, unlike gOS which is meant to replace Windows altogether.

The idea of making a cloud based OS is not exactly new. If you remember, it was one of the key factors that lead to the browser wars of 1994. Back then Bill Gates, after realizing Netscape’s potential, went out of his mind and declared war on the aforementioned company; the result as we all know it is that Microsoft is still here, while Netscape is dead and buried. Microsoft itself plans to take their Windows OS to the cloud with Windows Azure. On a side note, Microsoft will also take the Office suite to the cloud some time in the future.
