gOS is a series of Linux distributions created by 'Good OS
LLC', a Los Angeles-based corporation. The company advertised it as "An
alternative OS with Google Apps and other Web 2.0 apps for the modern
user On January 7, 2008, a test
version 2.0.0 of gOS, intended to demonstrate the CloudBook and named
"gOS Rocket", was released at the 2008 Consumer Electronics Show. However, the definitive second (beta) version of gOS debuted end
February 2008[citation needed], together with the launch of Everex's
new CloudBook, the gBook laptop, and a new, second version of the gPC,
the "encore" , all of which used gOS V2 Rocket (the new, GNOME based
edition)

On April 6, 2008, Good OS launched a new
publicly available version of gOS, called gOS 2.9 "Space", intended for
the gPC mini, this version is especially geared towards MySpace
users and is based on Compiz fusion, Gnome, and the Avant Window
Navigator dock manager, but it also uses E17 code. It has a Dock with a
"stack" very much like the "fan view" of Mac OS X v10.5 .

gOS Space was based on the Ubuntu 7.10 distribution
and a GUI largely imitative of Mac OS X Leopard. It uses the
Enlightenment 17 window manager instead of the usual GNOME or KDE
desktops, to create a desktop that has similar usability to Mac OS X.
This is possible because of the flexibility of Enlightenment.
Enlightenment acts both as an X window manager, and as a desktop
environment. Therefore Rocket works on systems as low end as a 350 MHz
Pentium II with 196 MB of RAM. But a typical gOS system would use as
a minimum a 1 GHz Pentium III with 256 MB RAM.

Based on the idea of cloud computing, gOS leans heavily on on-line
applications built on Web 2.0 and AJAX technology so it also does not
use much hard disk space for applications. The whole system fits
comfortably in less than 2 GB. Also many of the documents created with
Rocket, such as Google Docs documents, can be saved on Google servers
instead of on the local hard disk, so Rocket can work with very small
hard disks. In gOS Rocket, Good OS introduced the use of Google's
"Google Gears" technology which promises to make Google's web
applications useable without an internet connection. Currently,
Google Reader is the only Google application that is supported, though
other web applications such as Remember the Milk have added Google
Gears functionality.

gOS
Rocket-beta's primary features include a Mac OS X-like Dock called 'the
Launcher', containing icons to launch the following programs: Firefox
web browser, Rhythmbox audio player, Xine video player and Skype for
Internet telephony. Other programs can be added to the Launcher as
well. Previous versions of gOS used another Dock-style interface called
the iBar.

There are also icons to launch Firefox
to specific web-sites and web applications for Google Mail, Google
Talk, Google News, Google Calendar, Google Maps, Google Docs, Google
Spreadsheets, Google Reader, Google Product Search, Blogger, YouTube,
Facebook, Meebo, Box.net to online chat with Yahoo! Messenger and .NET
Messenger Service users and Wikipedia. The rightmost icon is for Faqly,
a system developed for Rocket to offer a built-in online community
based help system.

Other installed programs can be
started through menus, among the most important are the photo and
picture editing program the GIMP, the document viewer Evince, and the
OpenOffice.org office suite. More programs can be installed using the
built-in Synaptic Package Manager.

Sytem Requirements:


* Pentium III 1Ghz
* 256Mb Ram
* HDD 2GB
