Operating Systems are considered to be the platform to interact with the computer. When many giants fight by creating their most wonderful beautiful operating systems, SilveOS team made a superb project called www.silveos.com . And it is basically a complete sliver light operating system which has almost all the basic applications that are necessity such as Rich Notepad, Simple Notepad, Paint, etc... It also gives its hands to the social media and provides some apps such as Twitter App, YouTube Viewer, Flickr Viewer and also a cool RSS Reader and so on... And there are also some other apps like Solitaire, Spider, Chess which will accompany you when you are really bored. Here are some of the snapshots of the SilveOS operating system.
When you browse to www.sliveos.com, automatically the silver light application starts which is actually the booting process of the particular operating system. By default, the user is GUEST and you can simply login into the OS as a guest user and you can try the SliveOS. And obviously you can also create an account for yourself and you can simply login using that username and password.
You can register here and after registration it will take you to the OS Desktop. And when you launch the Start Menu, you can see your username.
|You can see my username in the start menu.|
You can see my social media handle "InfiVivek" as the username in the start menu above.
You can see the OS desktop in the essence of Windows 7. Ans you will also notice the icons of various applications.
This is the FILE EXPLORER in the SilveOS. And you can see some My Document folders and other stuffs. The below images are some of the basic applications such as text editors and paint applications that are present in the OS.

And yes, you might have enjoyed seeing these pictures. When i was trying the SliveOS, i was very sad to see a thing there. That is,
The AD that is getting displayed below the task bar. Normally you won't see the AD directly, you need to scroll down the page to see this. Off course they too need some revenue.
