When we first started the company, we had a single product: gOS. Last week, we introduced our second product called "Cloud."
I noticed that a few articles reviewing Cloud used screenshots of gOS, and might have assumed that gOS and Cloud were the same operating system, when in fact they are different operating systems. So what's the difference?
gOS boots a full desktop with full suite of rich client applications, such as Firefox, OpenOffice, Media Player, etc. The user sees a desktop and uses it as a desktop. When buying a computer, you could buy a computer with just gOS installed as the only operating system.
Cloud boots into a browser environment that's designed for faster access to web applications, such as Google Calendar, Documents, etc. The user sees a browser and uses it as a browser, with extra features that most browsers don't have such as "Powering Off" or "Switching to Windows." When buying a computer, you could buy a computer with Cloud and Windows installed together.
