Tuesday, October 30, 2007, an Online OS is both a URL and an abbreviation for Global Hosted Operating System. It’s a registration-needed Flash web application that emulates a traditional operating system, with file viewers, browsers, clocks & calendars, email programs, RSS-reading capabilities and more. It’s an impressive programming feat but unfortunately, it was running in slow-motion here as the video shows [WMV], which made it almost unusable. I don’t know if it’s a CPU, or a bandwidth issue, or something else entirely... it’s slightly faster when I’m not recording a screencast but it’s slow even then. If you have a fast machine and want to give this a try, please share your impression in the comments.

[Thanks Rami!]
