Future computing environment

Google’s recent announcement rekindled our interest in the future of computing environment.  Here are the key features of what we see for the future.

– a computing device with no local application software or data

– a thin operating system which will boot quickly and provide network access

– applications (software) accessible over the network

– data stored in a cloud

Some of this is exactly what the Google announcement provided.  We are high on this environment.  What does this mean?

– the computing device needs to be low cost.  And a commodity.

– data be easily and securely available. And shared.

– some means to positively identify a specific user

How does all of this work?  Our follow up post on this topic will describe user scenarios.
