Editorial Wishful thinking? Yes, but let's consider the possibilities. The last couple years have seen significant advances in hardware production and design. One of the more interesting (and potentially revolutionary) developments to take place this past year is the announcement of a new CPU, the STI (Sony, Toshiba, IBM) Cell processor.

this is just a "take"

on the natural order of things, all the big players, msn,yahoo, and googles Gmail. offer alot of space the will evole into other things until, a "service" like gmail, or yahoo other tons of services with like a 5 GB space.

it wont really be an "OS" just a Gmail like webservice
and it wont be just google, remember yahoo and msn are in this race to.

even webservice'd IM, and file storage could be options. but who knows.

this is really not that big a deal, this change things evolve. in 5 or 10 years, it may not be a big deal weather you buy a mac, windows or Linux or anything else for that matter. and that is a good thing.

will they be "thin clients" no,

they will be 'fat' cleints access network based services.
