Cathy Spence in Intel IT has a great blog on the specific use case that she ran with System Manufacturing that starts in my mind to ask the question around streaming both OS & applications.  Here's her Blog @ http://communities.intel.com/openport/blogs/client/2008/02/14/could-streaming-apps-run-faster-than-traditionally-installed

 

The question that I have is that application streaming technology has been around for a long time, Windows Terminal Server environments are a NORM.. so why does OS & application streaming really raise the bar on the new computing?   or is this just a matter of time when the HW & SW will become a trusted partner beyond the standards today to a new more compelling future?   

 

what do you think?   what makes streaming compelling or....../?
