Windows4All – An Online Virtual Operating System

cloudos

Windows4All is a Microsoft Silverlight (web) based online virtual operating system that emulates the feel and appearance of Windows Vista. No installation or account sign-up is required; and applications can be launched right away by simply going to Windows4all.com . If the application does not load, then you do not have Microsoft Silverlight installed.

What is Silverlight?

Silverlight is a cross-browser, cross-platform and cross-device browser plug-in that helps companies design, develop and deliver applications and experiences on the Web.

The desktop to Windows4all interface emulates the Windows Vista desktop with a taskbar, Start Menu, and Sidebar.  Also  included at this point of development is:

File Explorer
Internet Explorer
Video Player
Rich Text Editor
RSS Reader
Notepad
Paint
Calculator
Games (Chess, Spider, Solitaire, Tic-Tac-Toe)
