Cloud computing is a hot buzzword these days. In a nutshell, it refers to applications accessed via a web browser with the heavy lifting done some where in 'the cloud', usually a data center somewhere unknown to the user. The benefits arise from the fact the user can access the programs anywhere there is Internet access without having to install the programs locally. In a talk given at a conference in London, Microsoft's CEO, Steve Ballmer, disclosed that his company is getting ready to announce a new operating system designed to assist developers in writing cloud-based applications. Referring to it as "Windows Cloud", Ballmer gave up few details saying he didn't want to spoil the thunder of the announcement due in a month or so.
