Competing as Software Goes to Web - New York Times

Interesting snapshot and Apple/Microsoft client OS profiles, but I for one don't expect client OSes to go primarily "Web 2.0" (or 3.0, or...) "real soon now." 

Many technologists contend that the increasingly ponderous PC-bound operating systems that currently power 750 million computers, products like Microsoft’s Windows Vista and Apple’s soon-to-be-released Mac OS X Leopard, will fade in importance.

In this view, software will be a modular collection of Web-based services — accessible by an array of hand-held consumer devices and computers — and will be designed by companies like Google and Yahoo and quick-moving start-ups.
