From Global Voices, a fascinating story of Israeli/Palestinian ingenuity and collaboration:
A new Israeli-Palestinian Internet start-up called G.ho.st is taking on Microsoft and Google in the competition to develop a “cloud computing” operating system that allows people to access all their files and software via the internet.I've had a quick look at this Virtual Computer. Will post after trialling G.ho.st.
G.ho.st launched on July 13 and is offering users 15GB of free disk-space as well as various other applications to edit documents, presentations and spreadsheets. The system enables a user to manage email, photos, videos, bookmarks and the option via any computer or mobile device that has Internet access. The operating system is currently available in 20 languages, including Hebrew and Arabic.
