Macintosh OS X in a Web Browser

This guy has skills: FlyakiteOSX.

Couple this with an online word processor and email software and you’ve provided 75% of computer users with everything they need on a daily basis.

What’s even more interesting is that Microsoft just launced Windows Live and Office Live a few days ago. While Live is not exactly an operating system in your browser, it pushes a lot of standard functionality into a web interface. It also shows that Microsoft is heading into this space, which means it’s likely to get big very quickly.

Click here for a list of modules Microsoft is working on. I’ve heard that Live will have an open API so developers can extend its functionality.

Since I work from three different computers I’m looking forward to the day where more of my data is available on the web.

I checked the OSX out. It’s pretty clean, but i am a little weary of creating more memory hogs on my pc. Have you seen ReactOS? http://www.reactos.org/xhtml/en/index.html

The FlyakiteOSX is only the facade of an operating system that runs solely in a web browser. It has nothing to do with the real Macintosh OS X, other than the visual similarities. In other words, it doesn’t install on your computer and wouldn’t take up very much memory.
