I don't doubt your enthusiasm; but I do believe you downplay the
desire of businesses (and perhaps individuals) to keep sensitive,
proprietary data in-house.
Another comment is this: I can't count the number of "waves of the
future" (eg: "distributed processing", multiple processors) that
never hit the real-world beaches of most computer users. So many of
the new concepts don't seem to be realized outside of a limited
number of very large organizations or specialized markets.
My current wave of the future is the Tablet PC, with or without desktop apps.
