I think Dan Barkley on another board pointed out "The Cloud" means someone else's computer. I don't want that. Seems like all the providers are trying to move everything that-a-way. I won't be joining them if I have a choice.
We just took our office computers off a small business network because MS didn't offer it any more. The only choice they offered was a much more expensive system. We just went to a shared hard drive with a sync program for Outlook calendar and contacts. No more network or MS in that regard. We were constantly having issues which seemed to never get fixed properly.
