I’ve been stumbling around more often these days. Last night I stumbled upon eyeOS, my first ever contact with something using cloud computing system.
EyeOS is an Internet cloud computing operating system, where your computer is accessible anywhere so long as you have Internet access. It’s user interface is much like a computer desktop. You’ll find items on your desktop as you’ve left them when you logged out. EyeOS has various applications–single user applications, group applications, and file sharing capabilities.
You can host your own eyeOS server, but if you don’t have one, you can sign up at http://www.eyeos.info. When you get there, you get a login prompt.
Since you don’t have an account yet, click the new user link. The login prompt expands to show more fields. Fill it in as requested and click Create Account.
Once you’ve created a new account, you will be asked to pick a new theme as shown below.
Select a theme and you will be asked to login with your new account. Login, and you will be taken to your desktop. Since I chose the new theme, my desktop looks like this:
It looks like your typical computer desktop, and it has the following key areas:
- Menu or tool bar
- Desktop items
- Floating menu
I will cover each an everyone of these areas in a more indepth review of eyeOS.
This Internet application is interesting, and has lots of potential applications.
