    This speaks to the hazards of getting too involved in beta cloud computing trials. If you get too dependent on a particular system you run the risk of it being shutdown or being forced to pay an upgrade fee to continue. All this and no guarantees of performance. A nice downloaded program may not be completely portable, but at least you can use it until you adjust to a new system if support and upgrades are discontinued.

    I never understood the point of these web tops! It’s kind of link VT100 redux: fine if you’ve got a big central system and physically connected terminals. But if you’ve got your own computer with an OS installed why would you want to use a web top that you can only access when you’re connected?!
