    In my case, I'm not a day trader so it isn't that hectic. It's mostly researching and keeping track of investments.

    I'm try to think with my 3 brain cells who would want a cloud operating system other than Microsoft.
    I don't believe Home or Business users are looking for or wanting such a system.

    Windows 7

    We will see with the cloud office (Office 365) how much acceptance such an offering will have.

    All my money is tied up in cash.

    If you had a device with very limited storage, the cloud may be useful if you want access to all your Data that's on another PC. I personally tend to avoid those types of devices for something with real storage capacity. At present I don't have any need or want for Cloud storage. I have no interest in a subscription type of deal for Windows or office. If Microsoft goes that way I'll just keep running what I have now until support runs out.

    I think most of us would agree with you on that, It's only for big business corporates etc, not us home users

    We see Google making strides with Chrome OS. It's less expense to purchase. Perhaps MS's aim is to offer different types of OSs with different SKUs. e.g. Subscription or native > Pro or Home. This gives the consumers more choice, especially enterprise. Buy what you want or can use at an affordable price. No more, no less.
    7 and 8.x will be around awhile, so why not a thin client OS? Variety is the spice of life. So it goes with markets. Markets are much more diverse today.
    The problem with thin client is data costs. Not all can afford it. That's its real drawback. Heck, we hear the complaining about the service-oriented data-gobbling 8.x. Rightfully so. Therefore a thin client OS will only target a certain market, so it may not be profitable. Obviously Google sees profit in it, though.

    Choices, assuming a model that suits you, would be good. Not "here is what you get, get used to it".

    I'm all for that. I think MS realized that 8 was too drastic a change, so that's why 8.1. One can natively turn off the Modern/Metro except for All Apps and some account personalization, although the Control Panel remains. It wouldn't surprise me if they released an optional package or SP that one could install to turn it all off. Most personalization would have to be in the CP as it was previously.

That will unlock Windows 9 on the phone. Then you will be able to use your phone to access your Surface 9 Pro which will have its own identity verification process. Once that's done you'll be provided with a Computer Recognition Access Program (CRAP) that will give you a 15 second period to log in to your traditional desktop or laptop PC. Microsoft is hoping this will kill off desktops and laptops once and for all, forcing everyone to use only Microsoft products.
    OMG, I don't have a Windows Phone
