New York Times有編文章,大家現在都連線上網,有browser便可,MS Internet Explorer、Apple Safari、Mozilla Firefox、Google Chrome。還需要介意用那個操作系統嗎?

do you really care anymore which operating system you use? I don’t. For years, I owned both a PC and a Mac. I could use Microsoft’s Internet Explorer, Apple’s Safari or Mozilla’s Firefox, more or less interchangeably, to access the Internet. I could write an article on one computer, send it via an email message to the other one, and it worked just fine.

Even my teenage sons, who stuck with Windows because most computer games were written for PCs, stopped caring. They could play games over the Internet, and all the most popular games were made for the Mac as well.

Google主力開發Web app,現在推出Chrome也是令人有更好的Web app使用。將來,大家還會介意用那個操作系統嗎?internet再發展下去,Web app成熟後,會否取代軟件?

Web mail巳經係大家最習慣的,用了可能無十年都有八年。Google Docs的出現令word, spreadsheet等都可以用Web app,MS都發展Office live。還有其他各種Web service。

不計工作需要,例如Photoshop;不計跟機的軟件。打開Application folder,您安裝了幾多個軟件?常用的有幾個?有多少可以用Web app代替?或者巳經被Web app代替?

我大量使用Google:Gmail, reader, Docs, Calendar等。自己安裝而又常用的便只有SuperDuper!

其次係iPhoto,外出拍照回家儲相及管理相片用。在PC我會用Picasa(係!又係Google的 )

以前會用Cyberduck做FTP,現在用FireFTP,吾係Web app,係Firefox extension。Browser extension又會吾會係第二樣令傳統軟件沒落呢?

internet發展下去會如何,對現今的軟件公司: Microsoft, Apple, Google有可影影呢?

  1. Since most PC become Net-top & Net-book today, that’s really not important for what OS is being used.

    All that concern is $$ right ?

    Ubuntu + Firefox + Google +will be an excellent & free solution.

  2. Web application暫時都俾唔到我要嘅野(唔夠快、對系統整合性、功能…),所以對我而言,我介意用緊咩系統。

    呢個亦都係點解我唔想買netbook嘅原因(原本好想買),因為我用慣左Mac。
