HailStorm

This is Microsoft's plan for having End Users store all their data out in the cloud instead of on their desktop. The primary benefit, I believe, being that the data then becomes available to non-desktop devices (PDA with wireless connection, cellphone, kiosk at internet cafe or airport, etc.).

The main chance of success of this, I believe, comes from Microsoft's ownership of the PIM marketplace with MsOutlook. A result of them giving it away for free (among other things).

It's very easy to foresee MsOutlookXp having a one-button synch-to-cloud feature.

I expect that HailStorm will require that fees be paid by the End Users.


this is bullshit
