gOS- The Google inspired Linux Distribution

Internet is Full of news about the success of Everex PC with gOS installed on them. The main reason for the success could be attributed to its price tag of $200, however lets look beyond the price into the technology powering this highly successful machine. I did a quick research and found gOS to be an interesting project.

The philosophy behind gOS is that the desktop OS is just a means to activate the actual Operating System -- The Online Operating System. They believe that all the applications should be on internet and have created a marvel using this approach.
Google is the leader in Online applications with its extensive Suit of applications like GMail, Google Docs & Spreadsheet, Reader, Calender etc and an association with Google increases the likelihood of people trusting the product. The gOS developers rested their trust on two of the most hyped companies today
Google and Canonical ( of Ubuntu Fame).
Lets see what gOS is all about.

The About page of gOS says

An alternative operating system for the masses. Our idea is to be a simple, user friendly, beautiful desktop for normal people.

Out Of the Box Applications Support
  1. Ubuntu 7.10
  2. Enlightenment Window Manager
  3. Firefox Browser
  4. You Tube
  5. MP3
  6. Connection to iPod
  7. Skype
  8. Xine
  9. OpenOffice
  10. 1-Click connection to Facebook
  11. GMail
  12. Gtalk
  13. Google Calender
  14. Goolge Docs & Spreadsheets
  15. Google Maps and Above all
  16. Integrated Google Search
Clearly this is a very good implementation of the latest buzzword in Linux community -- Ubuntu.
It sticks to its goal of being Google friendly and could turn out to be very useful of an average user.

Everex is not content with launching just an ultra successful desktop PC, PCWorld reports that Everex is now planning to introduce a $300 Laptop. Man !! now that banking on the success. In the end this will turn out to be good for common people like me, so I support it.

Here is a demo video of gOS.
