Computing and Web Software

The New York Times writes:

Many technologists contend that the increasingly ponderous PC-bound operating systems that currently power 750 million computers, products like Microsofts Windows Vista and Apples soon-to-be-released Mac OS X Leopard, will fade in importance.

In this view, software will be a modular collection of Web-based services accessible by an array of hand-held consumer devices and computers and will be designed by companies like Google and Yahoo and quick-moving start-ups.

Faced with that changing dynamic, Apple and Microsoft are expected to develop operating systems that will increasingly reflect the influence of the Web.
