Linux completly from the internet?


Hello,

Is there anything like linux run completly from internet?.
I imagine that I would have some link to webpage and some window would open and I would have linux in linux. Maybe it would be some application.
Is there anything like this?. If, yes, could you direct me to such application or website?. If such thing exist I'd like to play around with it.

Thanks,

Cheers.

What is it you're trying to do? Do you just want to play with linux a bit? If so, try CoLinux (if you're running Windows) or a linux live CD. Or install a virtual machine (VMWare Server, virtual box, or qemu) and then install linux to that.

Yea, but I was wondering if anybody has created public server, available
for everyone, such 'test field', and it could be used by everyone.
Has anything like this been done so far?.

I use Mandriva One 2009.0 and am very happy with this system.

Probably not, as there's too much opportunity for mischief. It would be all too easy to turn it into an illegal porn server or a spam server.

But it could be moderated like forums are. Of course you would have to
log on but signing up process would be similar to the way you sign up into forums (giving your e-mail address).

OUCH that was a wrong link I meant netboot.me

Might also look at bko boot.kernel.org/

you could also do a google search for 'shell account' though you more then likely won't get root access to any of those machines
for experimenting either dual boot, a garage sale special or a virtual machine would probably be your best bet

EyeOS is just a web desktop it's not what I'm looking for. boot.kernel.org/ would be great if it worked on my box. It detects net adapter but I have to enter static IP, net mask, my router number and DNS server number and of course MAC of my net adapter but it can't establish connection anyway. I tried every possible combination. It kicks me out into standard menu installed on hard drive no matter what I do.

http://shells.red-pill.eu/: this is great fun but that's only shells.
I'd like to try exactly such thing but with window manager (X). I've created account on SDF and played aroud with it for a bit (played some text RPG) and it's great fun. But shell with X window manager is what I'm looking for.

Cheers.

Sorry, I gave you the wrong link. It should have been this.

http://www.netboot.me/

I am sure you can get it working.

http://nomachine.com/ has something called NX client, that will let you run a Linux session in a window. I use it to see if my site services work outside my LAN network. Very useful. For my tutorial, which might be easier, click here: http://68.2.78.26:8080/nxclient.gif

It's an animated GIF. Better quality than you think, but still some discoloration. Hope you find it useful.

http://www.netboot.me/ is great, that's the thing I was thinking about.
Thanks.
