Stallman warns against cloud computing

| In an interview reported by The Guardian, he said, "It's stupidity. It's
| worse than stupidity: it's a marketing hype campaign."
| Stallman warns that cloud computing is simply a trap to entice users' into
| entrusting their data and computing applications to proprietary systems that
| are beyond their own control and which service providers could make more and
| more expensive for users over time. He doesn't trust the vendors.
| "Somebody is saying this is inevitable -- and whenever you hear somebody
| saying that, it's very likely to be a set of businesses campaigning to make
| it true," Stallman said.

Cloud Computing Has To Be About Openness And Ease; Not Locking Developers In

,----[ Quote ]
| There was a ton of press coverage today over Microsoft's
| not-particularly-surprising announcement of Microsoft Azure, its attempt to
| get into the cloud computing business, competing with the likes of Amazon,
| Google's AppEngine and (now) Rackspace, among others. Microsoft entering this
| space isn't a surprise at all, so it's a bit disappointing to see the sheer
| lack of details surrounding the announcement. Amazon has succeeded in the
| space because of two main things: incredibly cheap prices and ridiculous
| ease-of-use.
