I agree 100%.  I have spent the last 4 years or so in development of 
such a system.

Aurawin includes virtual desktop platform that is open source.  It's 
lacking a cloud development environment.  Presently, all application 
development is done via the CMS system via the GUI console.  The 
back-end is all FPC-Lazarus.  I'm adding JavaScript and FPC Script 
support to the engine so the core objects don't need to be re-compiled 
and restarted.

Downloads App : https://aurawin.com/downloads/
AuVDM is the source to the Aurawin Virtual Desktop
AuSCS is the server that the VDM needs to installed on.

This is the syntax editor I'm planning to use for the AuIDE App :

I'm looking for syntax editors in HTML5.  If you know any I would be 
happy for the info.

Anyways, let me know what you think.  I'm still looking for market 
validation ;-)

Aurawin is a great new way to store, share and enjoy your photos, videos, music, and more.
