But in my mind cloud computing as it is now is a 50/50 between having a
"Dumb Terminal" and having a full blown computer.  You will in my mind
never really want to have a fully "Dumb terminal" but i myself am very
happy with the idea of persistant profiles between computers.  So i take my
settings everywhere all of my computers in my lan are in a sense a mini
cloud where i sync my /home/~ to all of my machines so that i have the same
experience on all machines that i have.
