So far, we already know many kinds of desktop environments such GNOME, KDE, LXDE, XFCE, Unity, Openbox etc. But, have you ever imagined such a web based desktop environment? Now, there is a new project which try to create web based desktop environment for Linux called Asturix On. The key features of this desktop environments are:
Beautiful and simple
With a small top panel (only 24px height!) you won't be distracted. There aren't oversized docks or tool bars to reduce your display's usable space. With the top panel you can switch tabs, access desktops or monitor system information thanks to indicators. When you are on the desktop, swipe your mouse to access applications, widgets or places. Just work.
Don't worry if you don't have a super-computer with 3D effects. Asturix On will automatically default to a 2D window manager. The user experience is unaffected, so don't hesitate to try Asturix On on an older system.
The desktop is based on Qt and the UI uses Sencha, two libraries that are touch capable and can be ported to a lot of mobile devices.
For a brief demo, please take a look at this video:
Asturix On is still in Alpha stage and have not completed yet, but it will be completed and announced in a month with features additions such as ability to access desktop via cloud, localization, more widgets, etc.
