"Sweet Like Candy, But with Twice the Calories. The biggest
problem with online OSes is also their biggest attraction - it's
exclusively available online. Outside of needing to access your
data on the go from remote, public computers, I simply fail to see
the advantage or reasoning behind putting a lot of stock into this
concept. Cool to use. But to me, it just seems more logical to
offer the applications themselves much like Linspire and Google
have been doing over the past couple of years."
