ajaxOS at the Desktop Linux Summit

This week we had the pleasure of unveiling a sneak preview of ajaxOS to the attendees of the 2006 Desktop Linux Summit. To see Michael Robertson's presentation on his vision for the future of computing and to see a demo of ajaxOS, click here.

ajaxOS is a Linspire-based operating system with some revolutionary new features to support the adoption of web-based software. Some of the cool new things you can expect to see on ajaxOS include:

Automatic launch of AJAX software when clicking on a supported filetype.

Ability to save files to virtual storage.

Ability to navigate through a file browser to the files uploaded to virtual storage as well those on your local computer.
