    About Good OS

    Founded in early 2007, Good OS is an operating system software company based in Silicon Valley, California, USA and Taipei, Taiwan. Our mission is to enable cloud computing through software.

    Products

    Good OS currently has two products:

    * Cloud - A browser operating system for web, email, and chat, and toggling into a different operating system such as Windows or Android.

    * gOS - Currently at its third major release, gOS 3 Gadgets is a full desktop operating system perfect for desktops and notebooks.

    History

    On November 1, 2007, Good OS debuted its first product, gOS, a Linux operating system for consumers, at Wal-Mart stores on the widely publicized $199 Everex gPC.

    Since its debut at Wal-Mart stores, gOS has been developed into its third major release–gOS 3.0 Gadgets featuring widgets powered by Google Gadgets–and has been pre-installed with additional PC OEM's on desktops, notebooks, netbooks, and shipped across more major distribution channels such as Circuit City, CompUSA, NewEgg, TigerDirect, and more.

    In December 2008, Good OS announced its second product, Cloud, a small browser operating system, to be shipped on the GIGABYTE Touch-screen Netbooks which will run Cloud and Windows XP together.

    In January 2009, Good OS released gOS 3.1 Gadgets, an updated version of its Linux operating system with an improved user experience.

    Philosophy

    Good OS's mantra is "Be good" because of our goal to be a good partner to PC companies, and to make good software for PC users.

    this is the first i have seen of the operating system and by the looks of it. it looks really nice anyone have or use this this os. if so is it any good. i might get it on a netbook with a gig of ram will it run smooth?

    I'm tempted to put this on my netbook, looks pretty good.
    And yeah, should run fine on a gig of RAM.
