Remember how we’ve been telling about cloud computing, and slowly you will find more and more of your life being lived this way?  Well, it seems Microsoft is making this their mantra for Windows 7.

Windows 7, the successor to the pretty universally hated Windows Vista, will be moving some of its previously built-in programs to their Windows Live successors according to CNet News.  Windows Photo Gallery, Windows Mail, and Windows Movie Maker, which were all included with Vista, will be downloadable options for users of the next iteration of the operating system.

While I am not surprised by this move because it will allow for quicker updating of features, it does raise a couple of questions.

- Windows is used by so many types of users, including older users which are the type of people StarterTech is made for, and you have to wonder if they will all be able to understand this concept.  Cloud computing is still pretty radical for some people.

- What happens when cloud computing goes down for any number of reasons, and people are unable to reach their applications?  The masses are not going to take kindly to such a thing happening.

This is going to be a radical change for your average computer user, and not one I’m sure they are ready for.
