Ulteo Application System Beta 1 - the FOSSwire review

,----[ Quote ]
| Ulteo is no ordinary Linux distribution. It demonstrates incredible
| innovation.
| It is clear that in the future, we won’t use computers anything like we do
| now. More and more data will be moved away from specific client devices, like
| the PC, and be put on a server somewhere. It will be networks and
| infrastructure that then connect each client device to the data.
| Wherever you are, whatever device you’re using, you’ll be able to access your
| data and keep it fully synchronised with everything else.
| Ulteo doesn’t do all this yet, it’s not even close. But Ulteo takes an
| important step towards this goal, and demonstrates how this might be
| possible, perhaps giving a little window into what could happen in the
| future.
| It is an extremely promising proof of concept that this just might be able to
| work and I will continue to follow the Ulteo project with keen interest.


Ulteo is the equivalent of Microsoft's "mockups", or "vapourware" (a word
Microsoft uses internally when it expresses desire to "freeze the market")...
the only thing about Ulteo is that it's real... and it's Free software, so
others can use it, just like Online Desktop.

| I will admit that I haven’t played with it that much, so this review is a bit
| limited. That said, if you are away from your home machine, your office
| machine or even your home country, you can be working fairly quickly whether
| you carry a laptop or not. *
| If you are interested, go to the Ulteo homepage and sign up and try it out.
| It’s still in it’s relatively early stages (the software included in the
| desktop is not current) but already you can see that you have much more than
| Google are offering. *

| service also supports the OpenDocument Format standard.

| hosted Web server. *
