If you want to get a complete eyeOS review you can try to set up your own eyeOS demo site. The last version released under an open source license was 2.5 and came out in May 2011. April 3, 2012 marks the released of the last stable version for eyeOS 2.5. To set up an online demo just download the archive from Sourceforge and go through the installation process. The installation requirements for eyeOS 2.5 include an Apache http Server 2.x, a MySQL-server and MySQL-client 5.x and PHP 5.3, or higher.
If you login to an eyeOS demo you will see that it focuses on facilitating collaboration and communication among users by delivering a whole desktop from the cloud. Some examples of eyeOS features include file management, personal management information tools, collaborative tools as well as integration with client applications. Its structure and API allowed developers to create new applications for it, including customizing and creating new eyeOS themes.
On September 15, 2011 eyeOS released a Professional Edition as a commercial solution that targeted enterprise users. This new edition kept some of the eyeOS features from the open source version like the web desktop interface. However it stood out from previous releases through a number of features specifically designed for enterprise clients like file sharing, synchronization, system wide administration controls and a local file execution too. A new set of web apps was also introduced.
During its circle of life, eyeOS won numerous prizes. Some examples include the BMW Innovation Award in 2009 and MIT’s TR35 award as Innovator of the year in Spain in 2011. The web application is multilingual and was released under the free software license before version 2.5. After version 2.5 it was released under a proprietary license. Currently eyeOS is no longer being developed and is no longer active.
