Festival of Lights

Diwaali - one of the richest celebrations in India. A festival of lights, wealth, victory and wisdom. This very day, Hindu mythology has many remarkable events. Goddess Lakshmi’s Birthday. Vishnu rescued Goddess Lakshmi from the prison of king Bali. On this day Rama, Seeta and Lakshman returned to Ayodhya after defeating Raavana and conquering Lankaa. The return of the Pandavaas from their 12 years of “Agnaat Vaas”. On the day preceding Diwali, Krishna killed the demon king Narakaasura and rescued 16,000 women from his detention.On this glorious day, we crack fireworks and symbolically we worship human positive instincts. We pray for the best and light up new dimension towards our life. No matter how far we succeed; as long as we have vigor and undying dreams, covering the way of light will never be a challenge in itself.Wishing you happy festival of enlightenments.

It’s an attempt to think and act beyond normal desktop computing and days of spending gigantic time to install/maintain operating system and required software updates/utilities on your box may become extinct.

There are many small-big initiatives on Web OS. Most of them are free to use. Few of them are still with “Beta” tag and few claim they are complete.

In parallel to this, web office suites are also playing major role in trying to replace desktop office software. Many of the web office suites come in front with free service offer.

Combination of Web OS and Web Office is certainly giving a strong sense of eliminating workplaces with stand alone environment in future. The dream of accessing a…
