Friend believes access to computing is a human right and shouldn’t be owned or controlled by corporations. We see a world that delivers the promise of the Internet age and unleashes the creativity of every person, outside the grasp of Big Tech.
For micro-enterprises and technology users who are upset and won’t take it anymore, we have created the open-source Friend Operating System or Friend OS.
The Friend OS uses Internet and Blockchain technologies to offer all the features of a commercial OS, but one that you can access anytime, anywhere, no matter what hardware you use....outside the grasp of Big Tech.
The Platform and Operating System
The Friend Platform delivers Friend OS, which offer several new and exciting technologies:
- Friend Workspace, a responsive Desktop as a Service solution built entirely using web technologies
- Intelligent Cloud Storage, a Dropbox alternative with lots of opportunities for developers
- Friend Chat, a Skype / Google Hangouts alternative developed by Friend Software Labs
- Friend Office, a full Office 365 alternative based on OnlyOffice
- Friend Mail, an easy to use e-mail alternative based on Rainloop
- and much more!
Additionally, the Friend project is developing The Friend Network, which enables secure, global access to personal virtual Friend Cloud Computers that simplify, augment and enhance the use of the Blockchain for everyone that is connected to the internet. Through this cloud computer network, decentralised applications can be deployed and distributed in seconds.
A gift to developers
We are instigating a global movement among like-minded individuals, developers and businesses to protect freedom by adopting the Friend technology. We are turning over ownership of the cloud and online collaboration to the users themselves.
We are putting an operating system into the internet using Blockchain technologies. This way, you are freed from software and hardware limitations. We are opening the digital super highway of deployment, distribution and access.
We have decided to publish a whitepaper to get feedback on the way we communicate and to check if our mission is understood as we intend it to. Feel free to give feedback to any of the authors via email or post onto our Slack.
