Operating systems are slowly becoming less and less important. We can perform more and more tasks through a web browser.
I am rather picky about what applications I use, but even I have migrated some of my tasks to be web-based:
Life Organization: Somewhat custom implementation using MediaWiki
Having these things entirely online is great because it gives me a consistant environment to work with. I don’t have to worry about customizing every single computer that I work on. I can simply fire up a few web pages, log in, and I feel comfortable.
And if you need to, there are a few more things you can do entirely in a web browser like word processing (Writely) and spreadsheets (Google Spreadsheets).
I like the direction things are going.
