Well, that's where I draw the line with privacy. I'm never using any cloud apps, I want my data to stay on my HDD.
I can't say anything to this. It's a really good and valid point.

Running Linux on a Cloud instance is just that. It's a tool to get something done. I find the marketing amusing too.

I've also had enough of this thread.
I couldn't have said it any better if I tried.

I also don't think the Cloud is anything but vaporware being marketed as a wonder of technology, with a diabolical scheme in the background. I have no use for the cloud.

I agree with you on this. My data stays with me, not on some server half way around the world.

The only thing Cloud computing is good for is getting people use to Linux. Well sort of use to it. At least use to the name.
