If you are interested in the future of computing, you should read Adam Bosworth's (of Google) post today - read the comments too. The comments make all of the points I would have made here.

The article presents lots of things to think about, but I think by far the most important is: The game is never over. People sometimes think Microsoft is so dominant that once it sets it's sites on you - you can't compete. Well, great companies fail all the time. Just look at DEC, Apple, WordPerfect, Borland, IBM...

I agree with Adam in that I think "the web is where the future is" - and I don't really need an OS up grade to get on the web. As far as making sites richer - well, lots of technologies are out there now to do this, but nobody has really implemented them.

As far as open source...THAT is a tough one - but at the end of the day, I just don't see where the money is. If you don't make money, how do you provide the support and services that make a product strong?
