What is Cloud OS?
Cloud is a browser-based operating system which is based on Ubuntu. Cloud is a simplified operating system that runs just a web browser, providing access to a variety of web-based applications that allow the user to perform multiple tasks without booting a full-scale operating system.
Cloud OS can boot in just a few seconds. The operating system is designed for Netbooks, Mobile Internet Devices, and PCs that are mainly used to browse the Internet. From Cloud the user can boot faster into the main OS, because Cloud continues booting the main OS in the background. Combining a browser with a basic operating system allows the use of cloud computing, instead of the hard drive. Cloud can be installed and used together with other operating systems, or act as a standalone operating system. When used as a standalone operating system, hardware needs are low.
