Linux Linux advocates have for so long advocated browser-accessed software as a service as a way to break out of Microsoft's proprietary desktop. Now that this world has arrived, there's less incentive to work on native Linux apps.

I've recently been working on a major application push into the SaaS world. The app will be available for private enterprises or via a subscription over the internet.. The reason is very simple.. no loner do we need to maintain 2 or 3 different versions but rather a single version that works across all standards based browsers.. for many business apps that's the way forward, there are some places where apps in the cloud may not be appropriate (i.e. anything that requires connectivity when there is none lol)
