1. The virutualization
2. Web N.0 & related
This is a bold declaration. You might have already known. But i have my reservations on weather this will be the tech to go for or not. I love to see a desktop ver. OS which is build around the web. My dream m/c would be like:
- Boot in a flash, b'cos there will very little services that needed to started for a web centered desktop OS.
- Make the browser, the center of all activity from IM, IRC, mail, Office Suite, web development (ssh into your a/c provided by your service provider & do your development works). I Think java applet can used to build ssh to do ssh from browser.
