eyeOS is a open source we desktop software, you can download it and host it for yourself if you find it useful for you. It offers many features from file hosting, music, videos to RSS feed reader. You can use the free public server by registering at eyeOS or try the demo to see what it has to offer.
Some of the interesting features include a POP3 email client where you can setup email and read. It also supports Gmail. It has most of the features you will expect in a OS including Calendar, spreadsheets, contacts, files, RSS reader, calculator, chess, docs, presentations, ftp, notes etc. All these may not be useful but some like Gmail, ftp, RSS reader are quite useful.
