This marketing tactic failed in the 1980s, what makes them think it will work now?  Does anyone remember the Novell keyboard that booted to a floppy?  I guess it is true, failure to study history dooms us to repeat history.

Cloud computing ia a rename of the failed server thin client of the 1980s, don't be fooled or stupid.  This will cost those using it dearly in the long run.

Shades of the old main frame/ Mini computing.  It really doesn't matter if MS has redundancy up the yin-yang, your ISP or router or whatever could go out and you are screwed.  I remember when we all had to depend on the IT gods to let us use their systems.  That was why PCs were adopted.  Not going back - ever.
