Good OS introduces Cloud operating system
Good OS, most known for its gOS Linux that debuted in Everex and Wal-Mart computers, has announced “Cloud,” a new operating system that boots into a browser with Google, Yahoo! and Live in seconds, and optionally boots into Windows.

Good OS will preview Cloud on a GIGABYTE Touch-Screen Netbook at the Netbook World Summit. GIGABYTE Touch-Screen Netbooks will be preloaded with Cloud and Windows XP together early next year.

“We are excited to preview the GIGABYTE Touch-Screen Netbook with Cloud and Windows together, said a Good OS spokesperson. “With Cloud, GIGABYTE Netbooks will power on to the Internet in seconds, while still supporting killer applications together with Windows XP.”

Cloud integrates a web browser with a compressed Linux operating system kernel for immediate access to Internet, integration of browser and rich client applications, and full control of the computer from inside the browser.

The operating systems features a browser with an icon dock for shortcuts to favorite apps, tabs for multi-tasking between web and rich client apps, and icons to switch to Windows, power off, and perform other necessary system functions. Users power on their computers, quickly boot into Cloud for Internet and basic applications, and then just power off or boot into Windows for more powerful desktop applications.
