The update of 'the cloud' will become even more mainstream when the Chrome os becomes a reality.
Unless Chrome OS machines retail for less than $350 most people won't care.
If you give them away for $99, then Chrome OS has a running chance of becoming dominant.
Most people running netbooks never power them off anyway, they just put them in sleep or hibernate, which restores my Win 7 machine to a running state in about about 20-30s, which is fast enough.
My netbook already came with some Web OS crapware that I disabled immediately, no need.
