    Ok I found this out by googling Ajax which I found that under Wired under and RSS Feed. Ajax I guess is a web programming component that is supported by many browsers. It uses XML, XHTML, and CSS I think I read. Now here's the thing.
    EyeOS is an Internet Browser OS - say again? - you use an Internet Browser to setup the OS and then you just run the OS in the web browser. I'm going to look at the Code here in a minute and see what they did. Google EyeOS if you want to download it and try it. If you guys want I can setup a server so that you can test it out for real online. Otherwise I'll put a tutorial on here for how to set all of it up.

    Now the next one I found (I found all the info on this stuff on the Wikipedia. I'll link it here in a sec) is FlyakiteOSX. It changes your whole XP environment to mimic Mac OS X. Google it. It looks awesome, but still no where close near XP.

    Now here's the link I told you guys about: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AJAX or a list of Apps that use Ajax: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_websites_using_Ajax etc. etc. Just search through there.

    I've seen FlyakiteOSX before. EyeOS though is very cool. I Googled it and found a link to a working OS. It's cool! The future of the web it looks like.

    Here's how I think things like those will change what we do now. Instead of having an OS like Mac OS X and Windows, we just turn on our computer and it connects to a Web OS. From that we run/load any programs we want from what we've bought online. Now this won't happen until there is at least Gigabit ethernet running throughtout the world.

    Think industry will follow there?
