So I take it you will buy into the Google ideology that computing in the future will be run from the web browser over internetworks, and hence will be independant of the OS?Frankly, I am tired of endless learning of OS quirks, Windows or some Linux distrubution. I would really like to see computers turn into appliances, with minimal differences between OS's and app's. I help keep up a mixed bag of computers running from P2's to Gateway E-4500's. My eyes cross when going from W98 to W2000 to XP (ME has died the real death). Microsoft certainly is anything but consistent.
