Microsoft Mohoro OS?

Microsoft 'Mohoro' Could Be A Whole New Way To Use Windows

http://www.businessinsider.com/microsoft-mohoro-could-be-a-whole-new-way-to-use-windows-2013-5

Quote
In addition to the next version of Windows known as Windows Blue, Microsoft is also working on something called Mohoro, which would be a form of Windows that's served up remotely over the network, reports ZDnet Mary Jo Foley.

Apparently Mohoro will be a way to use the Windows desktop in a software-as-a-service way, dubbed "desktop as a service."

That means instead of having Windows installed on the PC or tablet, the device would grab Windows and apps from the Internet and beam it to your device.

From the sound of it, it's yet another 'thin client' solution.

Nothing much new there, as the article noted.

Funny in a way. 50 years ago, the only way to use a computer was to rent time on a fairly dumb terminal connected to a mainframe and run your programs from there. Then along came the personal computer revolution which pulled the power away from corporate behemoths like IBM and Sperry-Rand and handed it over to the users. (Microsoft and Apple should know a bit about that since they were material in bringing it to be.)

However, now it's 2013, and it looks like Apple and Microsoft (and all the other advocates of personal computing freedom like Google) are doing their best to return our computing landscape to exactly what it was in 1968. Except with better graphics, fancier games, and online shopping.

Rather ironic if you think about it. When Apple introduced the Macintosh, their historic ad said that, thanks to them, 1984 would not be like 1984.

And they were right...

But it's sure looking more and more like 2014 will be.

At least if if Microsoft and Apple have anything to say about it.

This is a cross between the religion thread and humor, but what if "textual scholarship" applied to net posts? Instead of the fairly hidden word "this", we can do Chapter and Verse from the Collected Writings of App103! Or the Academic style (1)!

I'm all for chapter and verse. app103 will always be a guru in my book.

Hmm...how about The April Sutra? Kinda has a nice ring to it doesn't it?

"Thus I have heard!"

(The opening line to a lot of the Old School Buddhist sutras!)

Heh that, but it's actually "animal-smart", aka not IQ-180 smart, but sneaky and threatening to work like the way no animals are "smart" but that won't keep them from ripping you to shreds.

Yeah, but I think all of April's should begin: "Now the way it all went down was like this." ;D 8)

It's not so much worship as we're egging you on. :P It's been kinda quiet around here since Renegade went on hiatus. ;)

Be careful with that! It could be dangerous. I don't want to end up chained up in the basement. Or force mouser to build an outhouse.  :P
