Start of the Cloud Computing Wars


Most of the major computer manufacturers and software developers are building “devices” and software that will run run “in the cloud”. Microsoft just announced it’s release of Microsoft Thin PC. A very scaled down version of Windows 7 designed to run on the new “Netbooks”, and other less powerful computers. This OS rivals Google’s Chrome OS, which in a sense rivals JoliCloud, and as a far stretch the likes of MeeGo and Ubuntu’s NBE (which has been merged into Ubuntu 11.04).

In a future post, I’ll try to do a small comparison between the different OS’s

  1. Looking forward to seeing the comparison. Things are only getting hotter in the cloud wars. 😉

    Have you got a change to use Chrome OS, JoliCloud or any of those yet? I’ve not had a chance to get my fingers on Chrome OS yet, but have used several of the others. I dig em’ at this point.
