EyeOS

I’ve already crowed about this application to a number of people, but the more I play with it the more impressed I am.

I have trouble describing it, but…think of it like a personal information support system. It’s a web based system that allows you to interact with your information wherever you are…and provides you with basic tools to do so: word processor, calculator, notepad, phone directory, calendar. These all exist as widgets inside the browser, and act just like local tools.

I’m terrifically impressed. The best thing? It’s not a host-only system…you download and you install. It only requires PHP to run…no database, nothing. It’s all flat files and XML and javascript and it took me maybe 3 minutes to get it running. This thing is brilliant. It’s also GPL. Hack away!
