Desktop Software Will Soon be a Thing From the Past

Edit Article |

Posted: Feb 25, 2007 |Comments: 0


With Google and Microsoft making new application that you can access via the internet the only thing you will need to store on your own computer will be pictures, videos, and articles. Everybody will soon be able to do everything from designing sites, creating graphics to things as simple as writing papers via web based applications. This is because of the language AJAX and the web surpassing Web 2.0 technology and going to the new Web 3.0.

Nowadays everybody always wants a bigger and bigger hard drive every time they get a new computer. They feel that this is needed as desktop applications are growing larger and larger in space requirements. Because of the new technology that exists today more than one user can access the same applications without it slowing down for everybody else.

I remember the first version of Windows by Microsoft maybe requiring 8 Megs on your hard drive. Now with Windows XP it is taking up more than 1 gig of my hard drive. I used to have to wait an hour to download a simple DOS gave that was only 2 Megs because of how slow modems were. Now I can probably download about 1 gig in an hour if I have a real quick broadband internet connection.

With the first computer that I had had a 40 Meg hard drive and I thought that I would never be able to use up that much space. Now, I have 2 hard drives one 100 Gig and the other 60 gigs and I constantly have to delete things that I no longer need because otherwise I will need to get a larger drive.

Technology is changing so fast these days. It used to be that maybe a new computer would come onto the market every year. Now I see new ones almost everyday. When I had a 486 DX66 I had 16 Megs of RAM which I thought was screaming fast. On my latest system I have just under 4 Gigs of RAM and think I may need to try upgrading to 8 gigs real soon. Maybe one of these days the US Space Shuttle will work based on a pentium instead of the snail slow system they currently use. Most of their problems are because of the old technology they use every day.
