OnLive Desktop Plus Puts Windows 7 on the iPad in Blazing Speed - State of the Art - NYTimes.com
Remote desktop-like app for iPad, accessing Windows VM with Microsoft Office,
running on data center with 1 gigabit Internet connection...
If ever there were a poster child for the potential of cloud computing, OnLive is it. This is jaw-dropping, extremely polished technology. It opens up a universe of software and horsepower that live far beyond the iPad’s wildest dreams — with no more effort on your part than a few taps on glass.
And it is free, including Office, and 2GB storage.
Fast internet connection and web browser (that supports Flash) on VM, is $5/month.
