  • Sync with the cloud will be limited

    You have been talking several times of how important it would be to be able to [b]work off-line[/b] and [b]syncronize[/b] documents later.

    I believe that this functionality could work basicly only with [b]personal documents[b] (like spreadsheet, blogs, etc.) in the sense that you could keep last version in the cache and edit it. Of course it would mean that your editor would need to be such that the code (like Javascript) could be cached too.

    But it would get immensely more difficult if you try to do the same with common documents which others are also updating all the time.

    And Web 2.0 seems to be all about business models in the cloud and this would not work because there's no way to cache all that functionality, locic and all those databases.

    So I would wouldn't expect too much from this approach unless you're looking for personal computing in the web - which is not the whole thing.
