XIOS Beta is Launched Print E-mail

Linkoping, Sweden, (October 1, 2007)

Xcerion’s XML Internet Operating System (XIOS/3) Beta launched

Xcerion, the Swedish company behind the revolutionary XML Internet Operating System (XIOS/3), the world’s next operating system has after 6 years in “stealth mode” officially announced the Beta launch of XIOS/3 to a limited group of Beta users.


Daniel Arthursson, CEO of Xcerion, said, “We are excited to launch our initial beta program. The launch represents an important milestone for Xcerion as a company. Yesterday, September 30th we let our first group of beta testers try a limited version of the XIOS/3 system. Next month we will start to release more and more features including applications. After 6 years in “stealth-mode” it feels great to finally be able to present our Internet service to the public. Our scaleable Internet OS with offline capabilities that enables extreme rapid development of software opens up a new era of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). Hundreds of applications lend themselves to be moved to the OS.


In preparation for the public beta launch later this year, the limited beta program is targeted at the global developer community. It provides developers the tools for developing XIOS/3 applications. – “We want to create opportunities for developers to create user-friendly software that runs within the browser without any plug-ins. This is the beginning of a fundamental shift in computing as the web browser reinvents itself from being an information browsing tool to becoming an application
platform and API, turning the traditional OS into a commodity”, says Daniel Arthursson.


The initial Beta launch consists of the core operating system, a user desktop, applications, a virtual XML file system and a XML text editor for writing applications. Planned features in Q4 2007 are:


  • A visual drag-and-drop development environment for building XML applications
  • Productivity applications (word, presentation, email, calendar, rss reader)
  • Marketplace for finding, sharing and selling applications and content
  • Mozilla Firefox browser support (currently Internet Explorer 6 and above is supported)
