brace for marketing:
Friend OS, a modular, fully-customizable operating system accessible via any device that can support a modern web browser, or Friend’s Android and iOS apps. Friend OS leverages Internet and blockchain technologies to offer all the features of a commercial operating system, but one that gives you access to a secure and private cloud-based virtual desktop anytime, anywhere, no matter what hardware or software you use.
So what does this all mean? It’s apparently a web application scaled up to behave and be used like an operating system. It encapsulates an application and directory/filesystem like concept and essentially lives in one of your browser windows.
As long as you’ve got a supported browser, all your apps and data will be accessible through this. They claim.
It’s interesting as there is a lot of open source in there and even some docker effort made to get it running. Seems abandoned / not updated at the time of writing, but it’s a nice concept to begin with anyways.

Hello, this project is very much alive. Check here: https://github.com/friendupcloud/friendup/
Thanks for the mention. If you want to try an updated version v1.2.3, check out the website https://friendos.com – we’re updating the OS about once every two months.
Thanks a lot for the reply. A quick search revealed https://github.com/Aperture-Development/friendup-docker as the most promissing Docker set-up to take friendup for a spin.
