MinWin And Small Linux OSís Will Replace Windows In 5 y

Quote:
The demise of Windows will most likely not come from the desktop linux emergence, but from cloud operating systems. This article is far from being another flamebait making baseless predictions Ė I will explain step by step what lead me to my conclusion.


Reviewing all sorts of web 2.0 start-ups and more recently, cloud operating systems Iíve realized what Microsoft is so scared about. Microsoft is scared about losing marketshare; losing Outlook customers to webmail services such as GMail or Yahoo! Mail, losing Word and Excel customers to Zoho and Google Docs. The trend is more than obvious.

M$ is like the umbrella corporation of computers. if someone poses a threat, they will have them silenced

Sorry, but I wouldn't even consider running my applications on someone else's computer. I wouldn't trust google or anyone else with that kind of power. I'd rather go back to pencil and paper. Way too much like big brother for me. Might just as well have a gov. agent looking over your shoulder whenever your on the computer, IMHO.

Lol, good way to put it. I didn't think of that. But you could always set up your OWN cloud network, and run from that.....

Wasn't Crazy Larry at Oracle banging this drum a decade ago? No thank you, I'll keep my data to myself as much as possible.

Also, not to you Gary, but using M$ just makes one seem petty and trivializes an argument.

Yes, there is a place in the cyber universe for cloud computing. However, most of the software development projects I'm involved in will likely never live in a cloud entirely. A lot of what I do involves what is called embedded applications and systems. These are real-time motion control and simulation, along with high resolution 3D visualization. I'm usually pushing state-of-art hardware pretty hard. There's no time for being in a cloud - mostly. I say mostly because one demo system I did last year was a tightly coupled motion control and flight hardware simulation where we send a real-time data stream across the US so it could be viewed in near real-time in a digital theater on a 20 foot screen with 4K projector. Very cool. It really impressed the customer Cyber clouds are good for traditional business applcations and similar consumer applications. Just not what I mostly do.

Bye.

So, do you work for ESRI?

you mean like ... NOW ... isn't there a federal law saying the gov't can watch/listen to whatever your doing, and its not considered invasion of privacy?

good ol usa.

btw, windows will not fall to linux. windows has everyone (almost) in it's grasp. except the 8 people who own Macs, of course.

btw ... 'iLife' has got to be the gheyest thing i ever heard of (imo)

I'm not specifically referencing future laws. Just that one day, technology will have progressed to the point that the Cloud will be THE 'platform.'

Kinda like how some employers no longer have paper paychecks. They REQUIRE direct deposit into a bank account.
