Web OS - vaporware or not?

Author: JT Smith

From OSOpinion: "Could it be? An operating system that works over the Web. Through a browser? Could it actually be? It was true. First I checked by internal kill list. You know, those things you look at before you're willing to do business with a company. Were they Microsoft soldiers? Nope. They ran on twelve platforms. Did they want twice my annual income? No. They were priced like Adobe PhotoShop. Were they vaporware? No. They were in their eighth release. Were they a pre-IPO get-rich-quick scheme? I don' think so. I didn't see any mention of VCs. Were these guys repackaging an old technology? No, it didn't look like they were." -Kelly McNeill
