Code name "Midori"

The end of Windows as we know it. Maybe the end of Linux too! It's vey early days yet, but Microsofts latest project "Midori" will change computing from what we are used to. Their idea is to make an operating system thats not tied into hardware on our machines, but have it installed on servers instead! They reckon they won't be able to cope with technology and also dependencies, so this is the best way to go. People are surfing while out and about now on their mobiles etc.Like I said it's very early days "incubation" is the word they used.

So whats going to happen to Linux? will it go the same way? We will no longer be in charge of our own operating system, even our own computer! We will more than likely rent our computer along with our internet connection! a dumb terminal? I suppose it will be like when we rent our satellite TV (I got shut of mine, extortion). It will probably start off cheap like satellite, then the monthly rate will go up and up as we add more "packages" to our account. To me this is just another way of getting more money out of us poor saps! Computing is going to get really boring by then! We probably won't even know what system we are using or even that we are using virtual systems! It will "cure" illegal downloads of music and films for good! We will no longer own anything! Computer magazines will die out except for Microsofts own "free" magazine, just like certain satellite companies do. Maybe Microsoft have come up with this idea just to get rid of the opposition? Who knows? Anyway it's all in the future, and for now they say 80% of their income for "Windows" is when a computer is sold! All that money for doing nothing, not bad eh?
