I hope this isn't a dumb question, but I've been thinking about how
much duplication there is between the OS and the browser -- each has
its own navigation, its own file structure, its own applications and
plug-ins, and all that real-estate-hogging chrome!
Sure, some businesses are never going to be comfortable with cloud
computing, but the rest of us don't really care whether an
application is launching from a remote server or a local hard drive.
Why should I have to remember whether a file is in Google docs, or
saved in Delicious, or nested somewhere on my hard drive?
I assume there will be convergence between the OS and the browser at
some point -- or are there good reasons to keep them distinct?
