The Traditional OS Goes Away

I have said it before, but someone else said it this time. Tony Iams, senior analyst with research firm Ideas International Inc., said it in an interview with Patricia Pickett of eChannelLine. Here is the money quote:

"The traditional OS that we know no one loves basically goes away and becomes part of the application itself. The application and OS code are combined and wrapped up in a virtual machine and shipped."

Looks like Tony is now a student of the virtual appliance university. Welcome to the club, Tony. I'll send you the "No OS" pin you see at the top of my blog site.

Could this mean the day of glory of projects like JNode or SqueakNOS? ;)
