Impressive AJAX application demo, Web OS is really close

Zimbra collaboration application nicely showcases how the AJAX concepts can be put to good use, well done.

AJAX is the hype of the moment, though the core concepts have been around for years. Come to think of it, what is really happening is that peope are warming up to the ideas. We are starting to see some nice applications popping up. Zimbra is a case in point, it looks neat.

The idea of a Google OS suddenly start to make sense to me. Here is my fantasy web OS terminal:

  • It’s architectured around an iPod-like device running Linux
  • It has built-in wireless capability
  • On-chip Firefox browser
  • Touch-screen interface, powered by Google Suggest
  • I can podcast using the built-in microphone
  • The built-in camera is handy in so many ways

Exciting times indeed, also unnerving for many an outfit.
