Introduction to Web Based Operating System:
A Web Operating System refers to a user interface (UI) which lets the people in accessing applications that are stored fully or partially on the web. It doesn’t connect directly with the hardware of the computer but it may copy the user interface of conventional computer operating systems such as Windows. The availability of a conventional OS is compulsory on a computer. Web OS rely upon the conventional operating systems to function so they can’t substitute the computer’s fundamental OS.
The user side of Web OS software runs on the computer’s OS irrespective of it being a Web browser or a system-specific client. The Web OS is designed to look and perform quite similar to that of a desktop OS, by the programmers. Though it looks similar to a conventional OS, yet it doesn’t regulate computer’s software or hardware.
The main uses of Web OS include its simple and easy to carry from one place to other because of its light weight. No software is required by the user and he is not the administrator as the application’s programmer plays the role of an administrator. Moreover it allows every user to use a new version of any OS at once and the application lies at a single place.
Outcome of study:
On the whole, it can be concluded that technology has advanced beyond our expectations. This can be proved by the fact that OS can be used without it being present in our desktop. After covering various aspects of Web OS, it is found that Web OS is an amazing program which can be easily operated and researched. The benefits and functions of Web OS can be appreciated by the users, once they get used to it. It is christened to be a personal desktop for the generations to come.
