what will microsot sell when the world becomes more focussed on browsers than operating systems?

This article on the BBC today got me thinking – what will microsot sell when the world becomes more focussed on browsers than operating systems?  Already I actually already spend 95%+ of my time on my laptop in Firefox (Zimbra, Toodledo, our MIS and other websites), and as long as the operating system supports this, I’m pretty happy.

Maybe Ive missed the point, but is Microsoft’s Midori a downloadable operating environment?  What a world it would be if every client machine just booted up into a browser only, and you downloaded your “desktop” and “user space” over the web, meaning your online world was remotely stored whereever you go.  A sort of remote desktop world for everybody by default, where all the processing was server side and there was an immense “cloud” of “thin terminals”.

Time to up my medication…
