Oracle and SUN I just emerged, blinking, from the world of Skyrim, only to realise Sun Oracle has released the 11th version of Solaris (well, technically it's the 7th, but okay, we'll roll with it). I'll be honest and upfront about it: Solaris is totally out of my league, and as such, it's very hard for me to properly summarise what this release is all about, so I won't even try.

gmail, hotmail and wordpress could fall in such category too; and they are not marketed as cloud things.

LOLWOT?

Wordpress is a CMS. Gmail and Hotmail are free email accounts.

Dropbox is definitely Cloud.

The cloud is not the same as web hosting or a separate server. You app/data sits somewhere and it just works ...

You mean like... omni-consumer products, erm services? :-)

For a more pictural approach to proper IT terminology, please consult this source of wisdom:

No, really, I'm not trying to give a better explaination what "the cloud" is, I just like to poke fun at it now. :-)
