Good to see Microsoft trying something new. I'm interested to see how this all turns out.
Thanks for the read.
Windows has been around for how long? And they still haven't managed to get it right.
Supplement Yes, Replacement No
Though cloud computing will likely become used by a lot of people. I can not see the internet making local applications, data storage and operating systems obsolete.
The internet is not available in 100% of locations and will not be for a very long time, even satellite coverage would be insufficient for heavily shielded locations. Plus many people would not like to depend on an internet connection for accessing there files nor keeping everything stored in such a public location.
What if one of these cloud companies had to give over all data to another company or the government. Like Google having to give Youtube logs to Viacom.
If the local system is ended I would only use old legacy non-cloud computers for my files and use a hand held for e-mail and navigation.
Personally I think cloud computing will be a supplement to today's computing rather than a replacement. I can see people storing photos and other info they want available anywhere. But very personal information like banking, medical or personal activities I think not.
I agree, and things like Photos are more "irreplaceable" so the backup is important.
Oh yeah. I'm interested too.
Midori does look like it's the future.
I also wonder what Apple will do in response.
I only see clouds being an addition to working physical devices. I don't see physical devices simply being windows into a cloud; they're part of it.
Apple has been around a long time. iTunes has been around for quite some time, and they STILL haven't got a Small Application right.
Competition is always a good thing, and I'm happy to see how it all plays out in the future. Whether or not we're destined to be online 24/7 remains to be seen, but I think local computing will hang on for a long time.
just a thought. Dose this not sound a little bit like Windows CE with a bit of parallels thrown in for good measure
competition is alway's a good thing
My favorite part is the term "Hyper-V hypervisor".
Found an article here, too.
What could possibly go wrong?
hmmm.... this could be interesting...
Then after they release it, they go "Oh look, it's actually Vista!" and everyone continues on their lives and don't bother buying it, just as usual.
