Based on the Wikipedia article wikipedia.org, these are desktop emulators for running cloud applications. In fact, this is not a full-fledged operating system, but a launcher squeezed into a browser window.

It all depends on how you define "OS". If the operating system is something for you that allows your applications to work, and you get access to your data, then "web OS", whatever you mean by that, is quite a "OS".

In general, any "OS" uses in its work something underlying, for example, BIOS functions, or some subroutines from ROM. Do I need to call this BIOS and its functions "the only correct OS"? Obviously not. So "web OS" uses some "underlying functions" for its work.

Therefore, the question is, "what is the OS for you," and nothing more.
