Many of you may have already heard of WebOS's, online operating systems to store your files, apps, .... wait a moment .... operating system? Not really: you need an operating system to run a web browser, and the browser runs the WebOS. Although it's called an "online operating system," it's more like a "flash application connected to a server." So, we've heard of WYSISYG (what you see is what you get), so what's so bad about a FACTAS? I mean, a computer computes - it's based off of zeros and ones. A keyboard is a board of keys to press. A mouse is a device that resembles a small furry mammal (hey, at least they look alike). A trackpad is a pad that tracks finger movements. Do I need to go on? YouOS, change your name to YouFACTAS or something. The name might really confuse people.
But they're still useful. I mean, YouOS is a pretty nice one. For more good ones, visit the big WebOS roundup article.
I have moved my blog to Wordpress at theunixgeek.wordpress.com. I will still be checking back periodically on this one as well, though. 19 April 2009
