Fair enough, but a lot of the stress in the article on virtualization and mobility depends on something not yet proven - the cloud computing model. Corporations and governments will be busy sticking their oars in to the cloud and generally mucking it around for profit and control, so there is no guarantee the cloud model will be a great success, or not at least within five years which is only a short time away.
