They wouldn't want to build one (even though it is pretty straightforward for a standard VM).
OTOH, if they were supplied with a working "machine" they probably wouldn't care.

As long as you hid the VM+SW behind a familiar icon (that they could double click or poke) I'm sure most users wouldn't know the difference between a VM and a real PC.

As I understand it, a lot of corporate users are actually using some sort of VM (using setups like Citrix).

Operating system, programs, ect. that are not cloud based will be preferred by many.

Cloud based might work great but only as great as your internet connection.
A storm comes up and knocks out your internet and a thousand workstations. That should make the owners of the company very happy.
All those employees shooting the s--- and drinking coffee waiting to get the internet back so they can jump to the cloud and continue working.

What am I missing?
As far as I can see ... nothing.

LOL , man , i have heard of guys being "whipped" before but no internet , this is the type of thing that convinces me i made the right choice by only viewing the opposite sex from a distance.
I don't view the opposite sex at all.

And there is the reason why Adobe has lost me. By the time Acrobat Standard XI reaches EOL 10/15/2017, I will have found a replacement for it, then Adobe can take their products and shove them where the sun doesn't shine.
