PPT On Web OS
Web OS Presentation Transcript:1. What is Operating system?????.....
Operating System: provide common services to applications: IO, communication, storage. With multiprogramming: include abstracting shared resource. Local Area Network: birth of Network OS to provide access to network resources. We need similar services for Wide Area Network distributed applications.
“A software platform that interacts with the user through a web browser and does not depend on any particular local operating system.” Based on cloud Computing Cloud computing is Internet-based computing, whereby shared resources, software and information are provided to computers and other devices on-demand, like a public utility. “When It’s Smarter to rent than Buy”.

6. Empowering non-PC owners -
While some of us take having a laptop for granted, there are others whose main point of access is through Internet cafes or public libraries. For these people, having to 'start from scratch' every time can prove very tiresome. With a web-mobilized operating system, this ceases to be an issue Integrating services - Through effective partnerships with existing service providers, which G.ho.st has been very proactive about forming - it is possible to introduce such benefits as a single sign-on process, taking the pain out of logging in and out of multiple accounts every time you go online. Effective file management - Rather than having your data scattered about the web with a vast range of services, the web OS promises to make it easy to store, sort and access all of your files wherever you go from a single networked tool
7. Downsides of a WebOS
Works at the mercy of the network and the server load. While the many enabling capabilities of network-based storage architectures are of substantial value - issues of authentication, access control, and security/privacy of the stored data remain. Are you going to let someone else handle your data? The privacy, control, reliability and performance issues prevent the WebOS from being an alternative to the ever-more-affordable and easy-to-use desktop.
WebOS requires a fast and reliable connection to work correctly. Inability to operate peripheral devices. Web applications rely on open source infrastructure and an array of technologies and formats - and these are constantly changing, often with no regard for being backward compatible.
