Tons of people today don't even have reliable internet, and depending on the location, that will probably take a long time to change.
Even if every square foot of the earth above and below the surface has access to the internet, I doubt people would like that idea of their operating system not being stored on their computer.
Linux seems to be getting pretty popular, hopefully it'll be usable for gaming by the time windows 10 comes out.
I have fast, reliable Internet. My hard disk is about 150 times as fast and doesn't require a subscription.
I hope AMD gets somewhere with promoting OpenCL. Then I can ditch Windows forever, except for older games. It's really more for monetary reasons, but if we have to worship THE CLOUD to use a damn computer, something has gone horribly horribly wrong. What happens if the servers get hacked? Fire breaks out? Short circuit in the main power lines? Damaged by EMP in nuclear war (there might be bigger problems if that happens)? [insert politician you don't like here] is elected president and gathers incriminating data to use against [insert political party you like here]? If I can control my own data, I know exactly what happens to it. I know all of the risks that may affect it. And if anything happens, I have myself to blame.
Google can release Chrome OS. Do you know why? They actually have decent online apps! And their servers are reliable! Imagine that. Plus it comes with a subscription to Google Drive and you can get 3G Internet from some phone company. Chromebooks are a great idea, but they need a bit better hardware to render things. Windows 10? No way MS is going to do half that. OEMs will bundle it with no Sky Drive subscription and a 320 GB HDD I guarantee. That $250 laptop looks nice until you realize you have to pay another $100 a year on top of that.
