Bodibeat lets you rock out in time to your necrotic heart

I think it’s time we shut down the Internet.

A new version of the so-called Google OS, gOS will be available next week. Dubbed “Rocket,” this new version has Google Gears support for hot offline action and includes:

Virtual desktops: Available on the desktop, allowing easy grouping of applications across multiple desktop spaces

· Online Storage Drive: available on the desktop, allows easy online backup and file sharing powered by Box.net.

· Adobe Flash 9 for Linux: preloaded, allows instant use of YouTube, gBooth, Google Talk

· Updated Wi-Fi Manager “Exalt”: for improved reliability

While it’s not amazing, it’s nice to know it’s out there, you know? It’s like “Hey, gOS, whatcha doin’?” “Nothin, just raisin’ the profile of Linux by upsetting purists.”
