Is "Windows Strata" Microsoft's Cloud OS?

Earlier this month Steve Ballmer spoke about a cloud-based development environment, though he wouldn't go into detail, saving it for the Professional Developers Conference (PDC) at the end of this month. However, a look at the PDC sessions on Wednesday would have revealed a possible clue to the name of it: Windows Strata.

There were eight sessions tagged with Windows Strata early on Wednesday. If you checked back later in the day, you would have seen that tag vanish from the list of PDC sessions, however. Ooops.

The eight sessions originally tagged Strata were also tagged Cloud Computing, and that is where they sit now.

Yes, yes, we know strata is a geological term, but our guess is it's a take-off on stratosphere or stratus (the cloud).

I like the windows live stuff, but I still would not trust the cloud to my day to day services. Of course email and stuff only online, but not being able to use my computer if the internet goes out. Not for me.

I'm probably not the only one who wouldn't trust Microsoft to pick up his garbage, much less keep our important data.

I don't trust anyone, but me.
