Gartner Fellow David Cearley named the top ten disruptive technologies 2008 to 2012 as:

“While we’re waiting for Google to launch its own Google OS (if the rumours are true, of course), I’ve checked out 10 web operating systems and what they can do. Not many of them feel like finished and fully usable products, but there are some true gems among them.
