A listing of random software, tips, tweaks, hacks, and tutorials I made for Ubuntu
A new Ubuntu-based OS is currently under development!
September 22, 2011Posted by on
We (Raja Genupula and I) have been making an OS that will integrate the Web seamlessly with the OS. Think of it like in between Chrome OS and a normal environment.
UPDATE: The new name is CosmOS!
- Instead of having a web browser like Firefox or Google Chrome, it will use a Chromium hack (chromium-browser –app=URL)
- You can tab many windows together, sort of like workspaces in a workspace.
- The system is much lighter than other systems (including Ubuntu), since most of the apps are in the internet, such as:
- Office suite=Google Docs/Zoho Docs
- Notepad=Google Notebook/Zoho Notebook
- IRC Client=Mibbit/IRC Cloud/Alice IRC
- Mail Client and Chat Client are online, but integrated in the system
- Software Center is online too
This is only to list a few of the features that are going to be implemented.
But to make this project work, we need your help! We need Developers, Coders, Artists, Advertisers, Testers, People who can take part in polls, and even just people who can encourage the project!
