Microsoft to kill Windows with 'web-centric' Midori?

Microsoft is working on a project, codenamed Midori, to create an “internet-centric” operating system to replace Windows.

I've got a feeling they'll be late to the party again. In addition, their 'distributed computing' model opens up all sorts of new opportunities for hackers and malware. Given Microsoft's track record with security, I'm not convinced I'd want to trust my data to their system.

Redmond has shown, demonstrated, and proven on many occasions that they are incapable of creating an operating system that is well done, complete, and stable even when it is based on there own work.
And I'm going to spend my money on a OS that has been created on a completely different technology? Yea, right!

MS offers what they want us to have, almost never what we want to have. The web will never be safe. it will certainly never be as safe as my home computer. I don't want to need a connection to work. I don't want my work on line when MS next screws the pooch.

This is MS trying to centralize what by it's very nature is decentralized...us! They want to be at the center of everything we do....and tax it every step of the way. This will fail. It will fail because...hey, who needs this badly enough to face the security exposure?

And.... who does security better than MS? ":O}

Cloud computing has huge problems for a number of corporates, but especially the financial sector. Demonstrating that confidential information is being stored safely is a lot harder than just taking a vendor's promise that it is secure.

Poor, poor MS. Set upon by bullies when it only means well. Yeah, right. It's so easy to hate the outfit, yet they beg for it in so many ways. A*sbites!
