Online Web Operating System

Web-OS and HandHeld Terminal - If the server is the cloud and the VT-100 Terminal is your Tablet computer. Technically the OS is in the Cloud. Think about it.

The term Web-OS was coined by me as early as 2002 in a Post called "The Browser is the Operating System" and In "Nomadic Computing" with the small image show far below.

First Offline Slow Bloated Apps prone to virus and crashes are going to be phased out in a few decades in favor of Web-Apps. But in 20-30 Years the Desktop OS is also going to Commence its Departure.

I foresee it is likely that future Hand Held Computers and PC may not have an OS at all. The GUI will stream down from a Friendly Neighborhood Computer Services Provider CSP.The Keystrokes and Mouse

Move OS to Cloud

Clicks will Stream Up to the CSP Servers. The CSP Server Farm of Mac-OSX, Linux or Free BSD will serve the GUI and monitor your keystrokes. So no OS means no Virus, no updates, no crashes, and unlimited hard disk space at server. You can install your programs remotely and burn your data on CD or Thumb-Drive locally. I think roughly 35% of productivity loss is due to updates, virus, re-installation and Upgrades. This can be brought down to 5% or even less. :~)

All Things Internet - TCP-IP

This is in continuation of the write up earlier called a new OS. All peripherals should have a URL, all components like keyboard, mouse, harddisk, CDROM drive, monitor also should have URLs, like mouse can be /mouse then harddisk can be /hdd. if you need two mice then /mouse1and /mouse2.

Computer Data Interface

All except the cpu are peripherals, a harddisk bought from the market will be just tcp/ip enabled no drivers, no software, place it on the desk and log in with your /hdd from your /keyboard. the hdd will allow unlimited optic lan logins. The cpu can be a no connector crystal ball like device with ferrite underside for power. and will be at the corner of the desk looking like a paperweight and do the job of a smart router. Most of the devices will be talking to each other even without the cpu being aware of that.

Apply TCP-IP to one and all - y2k

The peripherals will be same for any OS any Hardware, you can even keep one cpu running linux and another win2k beside each other and all work seamlessly. In case you need more view get a tcp/ip optic monitor from the next table and log on and you will have double the view area, and while you are at it the guy from the next table will take back the monitor you would not even notice.
