What they're not telling you

Google announced an operating system yesterday. No big deal because even the fantastic Chrome browser has a tiny tiny market share that nobody cares about. What Google, Microsoft, Apple and Oracle aren't telling you is that they are all developing systems where your computer and storage will be virtualized and all you need is a dumb-ish front end. Mark my words, MS will probably be the first to have something significant to market where most of your apps run on a VM in the cloud. You'll probably be able to use your Windows machine from a Mac through something like Silverlight or RDP. Pay as you go for your apps and storage, coming soon...
