The best Web operating system!

Written by IT News on 11:42 PM

eyeOS is an Open Source Platform designed to hold a wide variety of Web Applications over it. eyeOS was thought as a new definition of Operating System, where everything inside it can be accessed from everywhere in a Network.

All you need to do is to login into your eyeOS server with a normal Internet Browser, and access your personal desktop, with your applications, documents, music, movies... just like you left it last time.

Some features:

· Easy and powerful Free CMS
· eyeOS is scalable
· Eyecandy user interface
· Very easy to install
· Can be extended
· Very customizable

eyeOS is the open source web operating system. Let's take a look at some new features which make eyeOS unique. eyeOS is a web-based open source platform designed to hold a wide variety of web applications over it. It looks like a regular PC operating system, but the "trick" is that it can be accessed from anywhere. If you travel all the time, or you don't own a PC or laptop or move often, then you can access eyeOS from an Internet Cafe. All you need is a web browser, Internet access and eyeOS is there for you, always, all the time, the same way you left it!

Dahlia is the new eyeOS with a revolutionary redesign. Now it has a beautiful taskbar, desktop, its own filesystem and pretty effects. Let's have a look at the applications pre-installed on eyeOS Dahlia!

here is some features:
eyeFiles is a simple and intuitive file manager you can use to transfer, copy, rename, delete and paste files but also to create folders, download or upload files and explore the eyeOS virtual filesystem.

eyeDocs is a word processor that offers you a quick and efficient way to write and edit text, HTML and Microsoft Word documents. Not only is eyeDocs a pretty good HTML editor, but it can also be used to paste text from other applications installed on your real operating system.

eyeCalendar is a calendar application that allows the association of a block of text with a certain day of a given month. It can be useful for things such as meetings, tasks organizer or even for remembering birthdays.

eyeContacs is a address book application that allows you to store your contacts and even import vCards.

eyeBoard is, like the name says, a message board which can be used to post messages. Each user can post messages and others may view them.

eyeFTP is a FTP client to connect to servers through eyeOS. With eyeFTP you can browse directories, download and upload files, create folders, rename, move and delete files.

eyeMail is, as the name suggests, an e-mail client that permits multiple accounts and allows you to send and receive e-mails. At the moment, it is very simple and does not offer any other features.

eyeNav is, basically, a browser within a browser. You can use it for browsing the Internet. Note that eyeNav uses the bandwidth of the server that hosts eyeOS for you. However, note that some web hosting services might not allow such behavior of the applications that you host on their web servers. You might want to double check before allowing eyeNav to run on a server that is hosted by a third party. eyeNav can be useful if it runs on a server with a different ISP. In case you cannot reach a page from your ISP, you might reach it by using eyeNav on a different hosting server. You can even watch YouTube videos on it!

eyeRSS is a RSS/Atom feed reader that allows you to read the latest news on your favorite websites.

and many more..
More applications (files with the .eyepackage extension) can be downloaded from the eyeOS-apps website and uploaded to eyeOS. However, if someone else gave you access to a server that runs eyeOS, you might not be able to upload and run your own applications.

How to install it? And what do I need to install it?
Now that you've learned what eyeOS is and what it can really do, you probably want to install it too. Well, eyeOS is very easy to install, as it contains only 7 files that you can upload in a few seconds on the web server where you want to install it. The main requirements for the eyeOS installation is a web server with Apache and PHP 5.x installed and working. Don't even bother to install the new version of eyeOS (Dahlia) on a web server with PHP 4.x as it will not work. The best part of the eyeOS installation is that it does not require a MySQL database, because it has its own virtual file system.

All you needed to do in order to install eyeOS is:
1. Download the latest installer from here
2. Extract the files from the archive
3. Connect to web server through a FTP client
4. Upload the extracted files into a previously created "eyeOS" folder (on web server).

eyeOS is simply beautiful, inside-out. It can be used from everywhere as long as you have access to a computer with a web browser and Internet connection. No matter if you use it to share photos with relatives living in a different country, store contacts, organize your tasks, do some quick word processing, read/send e-mails, play simple board games – eyeOS will always be there for you.

    Before I say anything else, I have to comment about going to a website while logged in as root. That's something you should NEVER do. Log in as a normal user, please.

    EyeOS looks like the windowing theme for It does all the same stuff (and has for a couple of years, too).

    Hello daengbo,
    Thanks for your comment, yes maybe I'm wrong, but I agree with you, never use root for common activity.
