Most people are not going to worry about it if it works for them and is more convenient and 
competition between suppliers will ensure it is.

In the last year, virtually every vendor in the cloud space arena has
reported system outages.  Outages that have lasted for up to a week.

At some point people will realize that the cloud is not the magic bullet
that it is being sold as.

And IBM said there would only be a need for maybe 4 computers in the world.

The context of that statement was projected sales for that year.
The rest of the statement --- which is almost universally ignored --- is
about the expenses involved in computer access.

The future is mobile and cloud and will include local storage but
probably not for running office suites like MSO, OOo, LO etc.

Security requirements will always make running an office suite on a
system one controls mandatory.
