Question by Atlas: Are you impressed with the newest Windows 7 upgrades? How does the “cloud” work?
I have a Macbook Pro and am considering installing Parallels and Windows 7. I really love the Mac platform and doubt I’ll use Windows 7 too often, but my dad already has all the software with extra licenses so I thought it might be worth installing. I’m mainly just interested because of the commercials I keep seeing about “the cloud.” What’s your opinion of it?

Answer by Hugh
It can’t hurt to have Windows, and Windows7 is the best windows yet.
The “cloud” may be the future of computing. The idea is that your data and apps are located remotely, on a server or site somewhere such that all you need is a web browser and a computer to get things done.
Google Docs and MS Sky drive are good examples.
