The Cloud is definitely the future. Using Thin Clients, as long as you have connectivity, is good.

It's neat to deliver it from the "cloud" I guess.
But wherever it's from, VNC on iPhone it VERY cool. I love Jaadu VNC, which lets me remotely view and control both Macs and PCs over 3G (and Edge if I'm patient).
I can even reboot, login from the prompt, switch user accounts, switch display resolutions... pretty much everything except hear sound. It has all the extra desktop keys, scrollwheel, you name it. A full Mac in my pocket, with pinch zooming! The mouse is very precise too. I wouldn't use it all the time, but in certain situations it's a huge lifesaver. For instance, I can email a lost file to my laptop, or convert something with Lightwave which my laptop doesn't have. Or do a quick Web site edit without even NEEDING my laptop at all. Or, when I'm traveling with my laptop and delete a file by accident, I can use my far-away desktop to access the last Time Capsule backup of the laptop.
When I travel, I just have to remember to plug my sleeping desktop in via ethernet, since it's too old to wake wirelessly. (Or else I leave it on running Folding@Home.)

People have been using iPhone to control Mac or windows machines over VNC since the original iPhone. Granted this is a little different with VM, but similar concept.
However no desktop os is optimized for mobile operation.
