    Don't look for Bill Gates for inspiration otherwise. A recent interview with him had him say that he believes computing technology will shift beyond a screen and keyboard, tablets with amazing handwriting recognition to replace paper, and computing devices that talk, see, and hear.

    Fascinating!

    They could use a whole company wide goal. Instead of the old "PC on every desk," it could be Windows in every home, office, and school.

    My thoughts exactly! Here comes the push to a cloud based OS....... You know... because chrome OS is doing so well. Almost time to walk away.

    That wasn't ever insinuated or stated that there is a cloud based OS on the horizon...

    Cloud based computing, cloud based storage, cloud based web servers, etc.

    It already started with the ill fated win8x.

    Boiling frogs.

    wikipedia

    The premise is that if a frog is placed in boiling water, it will jump out, but if it is placed in cold water that is slowly heated, it will not perceive the danger and will be cooked to death. The story is often used as a metaphor for the inability or unwillingness of people to react to significant changes that occur gradually

    Cloud os...?? Not for this old fart. I will stick with the last desktop version of windows... and find a linux version to replace it.

    Of course, I'm guessing that a full, cloud only version is still far off in the distance.
