The rules have changed, now is completly posible to move from the desktop to the cloud, let’s do the leap:
A desktop or even a laptop is not competly needed for the daily average use today, let’s inspectmy daily activities:
-Emailing can be done from any of the excelent webmail services that exist today, I have been using Gmail for the last 4 months. It’s fun to see how the world is upsode down, I rememeber some years ago when we were trying to use webmail service like hotmail from the desktop email client like Outlook in Windows… Now I do the opposite, I fetch my messages from my domains to Gmail, and manage everything from the web.
-Productivity Suites: Lots of people uses Microsoft Office, many have moved to OpenOffice.org (LibreOffice), and some other use many other options, Now this huge applications are NO LONGER NEEDED, Most of the daily work can be done in the excelent Web Applications like http://www.zoho.com or of course Google Docs (http://docs.google.com).
-Photo Management can be hosted on free services like FLICKR or http://picasaweb.google.com
-Many Diffrent files can be hosted on free services like Dropbox or UbuntuOne.
There will be of course several caveats -that I’ll be bloggin here-, but the benefits are huge:
-I can relay on inexpensive -very light- hardware, In fact one of the resons for this movement is to prepera myself for the adoption of a tablet next year, now it does not matter wich one, because anyone will be compatible with what I need (maybe even the iPad).
Let’s move on.
