    Great post! It shows how many questions are still open within the evolution process of Cloud Computing.

    I’m going to skip over 1 through 13 – frankly I don’t have the time to address every comment. I shall focus on your summary in 14.

    Common nomenclature is VERY relevant to the big picture, unfortunately. I write “unfortunately” because the process of developing a common nomenclature always takes time, patience and compromise. We’d like to speed it up, but we cannot.

    Without common nomenclature, clear and effective conversations are virtually impossible. Over time, we will come to accept certain terms to describe the various aspects of cloud computing. Until that time we’ll continue to struggle in our conversations as we insist on using labels and definitions that conflict and collide.

    Is it silly or trivial to fight over names and terminologies? Perhaps. It depends on your perspective. Clearly it is foolish not to seek some level of consensus through debate.
