Friend Workspace

Friend Workspace

The Friend Workspace has everything you expect from an operating system:

  • window management
  • file management and i/o operations
  • user management
  • user and application privilege management
  • application management and process handling
  • drag & drop
  • application to application messaging
  • networking
  • configurable pull-down menus
  • notifications and logging
  • event handling
  • and much more!

It provides a unified experience across all of your devices - be it on your desktop PC, Mac, tablet, phone or VR headset.

The feature set of the Friend Workspace lets users easily multitask in the cloud and lets developers focus on creating useful apps instead of having to plan the same system architecture over and over again.

An operating system for the cloud

Friend Workspace provides you with everything you need to work, learn or play. And it all takes place where you usually operate from day to day: on the internet, using your cloud.
