All I know is "cloud" is a meaningless buzzword of value only to
marketers, probably of the Microsoft variety. Ask "what is the cloud"
to ten intelligent people, and you'll get ten different answers. That
in itself is reason to call this thing anything but "cloud". Call it
Khrushchev or H2O for all I care, but nothing containing "cloud".
