At first I thought the news of IBM and Canonical working together to deliver cloud based Linux desktops to the businesses out there sounded like a great idea. But then I remembered just how awful Lotus really is. Do we really want IBM doing anything with software these days?
My objections aside with regard to IBM, I am also not really too into my recent use of another cloud based product put out for Ubuntu called Ubuntu One. Based on the DAYS of it being DOA on all my PCs, one might as well refer to it as Ubuntu Offline as I have yet to get it working. And I am hardly the only one.
Perhaps, though, IBM and Canonical get it right this time? I enjoy my Ubuntu desktop after all, so now all we need to do is get a better handle on the cloud computing aspect of things. Then things will likely work out fairly well from then on out.
