What you don't get
Aaron, like hell it does, whether you like it or not, the web has gone 2.0, it's logical for HTML to follow.
Camilla, you are missing the point completely, this is about offline, I'd like to see you 'app streaming' offline. If this is what I wanted I could do vnc, x forwarding, nx or even rdp for free.
Simon, not only is the world going mobile, it's also about to get away from wintel on the last front, the pc, first with netbooks / MIDs and then with everything else. The phone has already been lost by microsoft and unless fuel cells go commercial soon, intel's chance to get in the market looks pretty far away.
This is what the world needs, total freedom on both the back and frontends, with clear, open standards.
If you want to stick to wintel and limit your choices, (for a while) you will be free to do so, but in the end it won't keep making sense.
I for one welcome our new armlinux overlords.
