Cloud computing is one of the hot topics in terms of the next evolution of the operating system and how we're going to use computers in the future. In short, cloud computer is Internet-based computing where the accessible data is stored on a server and accessed via the Internet and a secure connection.
From an enterprise perspective, cloud computing makes sense because all information is stored on company servers, and this information can be accessed by using ANY enterprise computer, logging into your account, and working away without saving anything on the local computer in use. Deploying such technology is costly, and it's tough for companies to justify this expense especially with a traditional infrastructure in place.
From a personal computing perspective, one could argue that cloud computing might not be too practical. Personal computers have privacy (of course, to a certain extent), and you can store your personal information locally.
