Bloat for the cloud

ChromeOS is intended to be a lightweight OS with most of the work done in the cloud. This means the hardware requirements are lower. However, one loses power and control. The loss of power means one can not powerful apps locally and store the data locally - there some that will always need this and many who want this. If everything starts out local then one has control of the data and its location(s).

I do not see that Slurp truly understands Chocolate Factory's strategy. Thus, they are aping a mirage.
