Hi John,

This cloud thing sounds very familiar. ...OH, YEAH! ..it was called a MAINFRAME. Deemed obsolete for lack of speed and security redundencies when used on the open internet.

There is a BIG difference in storing stuff on an in-house corporate server/network and giving it to Google or Microsoft to take care of for you. ...I wouldn't even have a gmail or any webmail account for security reasons.

I guess the current generation of techies at MS and Dell aren't old enough to remember it.

I'll keep my data and expensive applications safe and sound at home and on an offsite back up I have secure control over.
