FriendOS: The Open Source Cloud-Based Operating System For Everyone

FriendOS is a very user-friendly open source operating system also known as FriendSkyOS. FriendSkyOS was the original name for this OS, but the term “Sky” has been dropped for the most part when this Your-Desktop-Any-Device operating system is referenced.

Accessing FriendOS

The FriendOS Cloud-Based operating system allows the user to access multitasking applications, communicate with friends and colleagues, and collaborate with others on projects on any device anywhere. Your computer becomes a Cloud computer accessible by you on-demand in the Cloud from anywhere on any device. The OS provides you with a collaborative Workspace from which you can multitask and collaborate with friends and coworkers using Friend’s native office suite (OnlyOffice) seamlessly compatible with MS Office, G-Suite, and other compatible Cloud services.
