Microsoft's "Windows Cloud" Operating System

In a month's time Microsoft will announce a new operating system called Windows Clouds. Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has revealed a few details about this new operating system last Wednesday. But this new OS is not in any way connected or part of the Windows 7 the operating system that Microsoft is developing to succeed Windows Vista. Windows Clouds (or whatever its name would be upon its release) "is intended for developers writing cloud-computing applications". This is what Ballmer said to IT managers at a Microsoft-sponsored conference in London. Cloud computing is a term often applied to programs that are presented in a Web browser, but the actual computing is performed at a distant data center. So if you are not a developer this new OS would not be of any use for you.
