The phrase Remote Desktop implies that you are logging in, not going to, the desktop. We think that over time everyone will realize that the desktop should be coming to you, you are not going to it for much anymore.
Take Remote Desktops in the single desktop model for instance. You have a single desktop and some kind of software/Internet connection to go to that desktop where your stuff is oriented, you guessed it, to your desktop. The Cloud, even though it is a little vague, is finally bringing perspective to where it should be, with you at the center of your personal universe.
