n the middle of the desert between Israel and Palestine, Ghost's high-tech Virtual Computer is set to launch Tuesday. After three years of work, Ghost finished the development of its Web-based operating system that uses "cloud computing" to let users access their desktop and data from any computer worldwide.

Ghost, short for Global Hosted Operating System, was founded in 2006 by Zvi Schreiber, whose goal was to create the Virtual Computer that works with third-party Web applications like Google Docs, Zoho, and Flickr and joins them together into one online service and can be accessed from any computer with the Internet. Users can also access their personal desktop, files and applications.

Based in the West Bank town of Ramallah, with a smaller team of employees in the Israeli town of Modiin, Schreiber was interested in creating a company that shows the world that Israelis and Palestinians can work together. Since the Israeli government forbids most travel between Israel and Palestine, the majority of their work is done through phone and video conferencing.

The alpha version of Ghost's Virtual Computer was launched in May 2008 and can be previewed on its Web site. Users can get an extra 10GB when they use the promotion code "launch." To celebrate this accomplishment, Ghost's Palestinian-Israeli team will be joined by former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Tony Blair at Tuesday's launch

oh crap, too much chan! TOO MUCH CHAN!

This is going to go really well for hotels and public areas that don't need the full OS for simple web browsing functions. Wouldn't be surprised to see a bunch of lower end system running this puppy in the near future.

Uhm...anyway, back on topic....

I guess they beat Google to market on the whole "Web OS" thing, eh? This is exactly what I was thinking Chrome OS would be.

I'm pretty sure they aren't the first. I've tried something like this before, but can't remember the name.
