Are you running Windows? XP? Vista?How about Mac OSX? Which version? Linux? Which Flavor?Actually, I’m running three – all via VMWare Workstation Edition.Truth is, the Operating System does not matter – or, won’t matter very shortly. Most of the applications people will be using will depend on two things:a. Internet Connection b. Any modern / standards-based Browser (IE, Firefox, etc…)More on this later – but the writing is on the wall. Looks like Google and some others get it, and Microsoft does not (not yet at least).This is the most exciting time ever to be in Information Technology! We are amidst a paradigm shift, as important as the advent of the internet itself, perhaps.
