Israelis, Palestinians collaborate on computing revolution

Sunday, May 06, 2007 |  by Staff Writer

A group of tech-savvy Israelis and Palestinians have joined forces to create what they hope will amount to nothing short of a revolution in the way people use their computers.

At the same time, they want to show that mutually beneficial peaceful coexistence is possible.

Started by Israeli entrepreneur Zvi Shreiber, Global Hosted Operating System, or G.ho.st, is a remotely-hosted operating system that users can access from any computer that has an Internet connection.

Sheiber and his Palestinian partner, Tareq Maayah, told Ynet that when it is finished, they see G.ho.st complementing and eventually replacing Microsoft Windows as the dominant platform for personal computing.

G.ho.st has offices in Jerusalem and Ramallah, and nearly all of its 15 employees are Israeli Arabs or Palestinians.
