Cloudbook, with erm, a big hard drive

"The software has never lived up to many of the promises that Sun made about it. Chances are it can be uninstalled from most desktop machines and the user won't even notice."
..and those promises would be what exactly? Ubiquity? Write once run anywhere? Usage in embedded devices?

Ubiquity : http://langpop.com/
Write once : works for me on Linux, Windows, Unixs, AIX...
Embedded : yep it has those too.
References and clarification please, or else you are just spitting..
