Re: CAD ... is suited to being run in the cloud

NOTHING is "suited" to the cloud except websites. That sort of cloud computing is sheer insanity on some many levels.

I'll do MY computing on NON-rental SW, on a computer I own. I'll do backups not needing the cloud. I'll be able to work without internet and even for many hours with no power.

Real cost, privacy, security, availability.

"models hold commercially sensitive information that's best not held on laptops floating about the place"

It's easier to control a laptop's privacy/access and location than a cloud service. I certainly don't trust MS, Amazon. Google etc.
