I'm interested in building a OS completely cloud based and built with languages that even the worse computer could handle (Javascript HTML5 CSS), my goal would be to allow anyone to use it for free.

Heres what I'm thinking

Basically, you'ed have a VERY simple suite of apps, maybe a game or two and some word processing or something, and every time you'ed make a change a JS file would be saved to your computer (or most likly you'ed chose to download it when your done with your editing), and when you wanted to get back on all you'ed do was upload the recently saved JS file and all your stuff would be up and running. It would be great for public computers, all you'ed need would be a flash drive and you could upload it anywhere.

I know it's not completely practical (at least you don't have to worry about logging in, and a server) you would still need some sort of OS to run it in the first place, but thats my goal and I'd love if you guy's would help me.
