AjaxOS is a concept that allows an OS to use remote AJAX-based applications to be treated as if they were local.

Michael Robertson presents his view of AjaxOS. He claims that moving software into services is going to be successful and a way to compete with Microsoft. Besides he admits that they never will clone Office completely.

I don’t agree with that claim. I think the principle idea of software being delivered through the web is going to be succssesful, but I don’t think the success factor will be AJAX as such. I think the success factor will be simple collaboration and a low enty barrier (just a browser needed).
