Here is a crazy idea that just pops into my brain/mind. I wonder, if one day computer users don’t have to worry about bandwidth limitation and bandwidth cost, will it be possible and cool to have boot an operating system from/over the web (i.e., Internet)? I guess I like the idea of no question is too stupid to be pondered upon or have asked!
Update: I don’t mean this as in remote desktop or anything like that OK? It’s more of like taking a traditional operating system such as Windows and boot it from the cloud, but yet one can experience this kind of computing as if one use a traditional operating system locally. Imagining you can boot multiple operating systems at the same time on one computer screen, switching between them effortlessly! How’s that eh?
Update: Furthermore, with this idea in mind, can consumer spend less on computing hardware (but might be more on cloud fees) since they might only need a smart computer monitor (i.e., designs to connect directly to the Internet), a router, and an Internet connection? Whether this be a good thing or not, I don’t know!
