Ballmer: Windows Cloud OS To Be Unveiled In A Month

This could be a game changer for Microsoft — a new OS code-named Windows Cloud that is aimed at developers writing cloud apps. Look for an official announcement in about a month:

From Infoworld:


Within a month, Microsoft will unveil what Ballmer called "Windows Cloud." The OS, which will likely have a different name, is intended for developers writing cloud-computing applications, said Ballmer, speaking in London to an auditorium of IT managers at a Microsoft-sponsored conference.

According to the Infoworld acticle, this new OS would not put Office on the web, but would allow for ““light editing”.  I’m not one for the whole cloud computing thing, preferring a seamless sync model. However, this could open the door to a lot more possibilities.
