Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

icloud consists of a desktop with applications and files that you run through your web browser. Because it's running in the cloud (the internet) it can offer you impressive features such as easy sharing and rich collaboration.

Basically, icloud is a web operating system, or webOS like eyeOS, Atoolo or Cloud which works in Internet Explorer and Firefox (though in Firefox it's still in Alpha). I could only tested it in Firefox because my home computer runs Linux and it worked great. iCloud comes with several tools, such as a viewer for your images and photos (which you can also tag and share), a music player, etc. Among the tools of daily use, it also includes a word processor very similar to Word, calendar and tasks, e-mail client, and task manager. Particularly useful may be the editor and integrated IDE iCloud, which allows the development of applications, as well also function as XML editor.
