Straight out of the Netbook World Summit in Paris (unfortunately, we couldn't attend), is an announcement of a new operating system. GOS the maker of the Linux OS on the Cloudbook, is debuting Cloud, a new open-source operating system that boots into a browser with Google, Yahoo and Windows Live within seconds. However, like Splashtop the OS can also be a pre-boot environment and users can optionally boot into a full Windows or Linux OS.
From the screenshots (see a better picture below), gOS Cloud features an full browser with a Mac OS like dock with shortcuts to favorite apps, tabs for multi-tasking between web and rich client apps, and icons to switch to Windows, power off, and perform other necessary system functions.
