Free Online Virtual Computer

       Today, I came across a service called “Global Hosted Operating System” or “Ghost” (actually G.ho.st) that is the closest resemblance to the desktop model that I have experienced to date. If you are on broadband (high-speed internet), you have to at least try the “Ghost” virtual computer.  It will not harm your computer in anyway and it is absolutely free. The first thing to make clear is that Ghost is currently in the “alpha” stage of “public” testing. It is stable and usable, but it is not yet fully complete.  During “alpha testing”, you can expect some bugs, but they will not bite

                                

What is G.ho.st®?

         G.ho.st® provides every person in the world with a free Virtual Computer (VC). Like a Windows PC, or Mac, the VC is a personal computing environment which includes your desktop, your personal settings, your files and your choice of software applications. But unlike a PC, your VC is not installed on one physical computer – instead it is stored in professional data centers across the Internet cloud, and is accessed from any Internet browser in the world. From any computer, open the browser to G.ho.st , enter your username and password, and continue using your VC from exactly the state you last left it in.

Advantages of G.ho.st
  • Available from any browser in the world instead of being installed on one physical machine.
  • The operating system, many apps, and the first 5GB of data storage and 3GB of email storage are absolutely free.
  • Software (namely Web-based software) can be run without installation.
  • The computer is always up-to-date, secure and backed up with no action or cost on your part.
  • The G.ho.st VC manages all your Web logins and all your web ‘stuff’ (e.g. files on different web services).
  • Because it is online, the G.ho.st VC provides new possibilities for fun and collaboration, beyond what is available on a PC.
