"If you need an OS for you laptop, your phone, and your tablet, why don’t you need one in the cloud? Our current conception of how people use the cloud has significant limitations that could be mitigated with the introduction of a cloud-based operating system that people can look at as their “virtual computer” that’s always on, always working.

...

A cloud operating system (COS) would be capable of the following:

  • keep track of identity information, attributes, and preferences for the owner
  • run unlimited applications of the owner’s choice
  • store and manage the owner’s personal data no matter where it resides
  • provide generalized services that any application can take advantage of

mediate and abstract the usage of Web-based APIs—the libraries of the cloud

A cloud OS provides an individual, independent compute space in the cloud for everyone." (http://www.windley.com/archives/2012/04/personal_clouds_need_a_cloud_operating_system.shtml)
