Aim for device drivers & servers that can interact as
client & server pairs over tcp/ip, Examples:
	/usr/ports/graphics/xsane	http://www.xsane.org/
	/usr/ports/sysutils/nut 	http://www.networkupstools.org/
	X windows split screens & client proceses.
& try to avoid neeeding to have to run specific programs only on the host
connected to the device.

Non native English is not the cause of misunderstanding :-) 
Misunderstanding comes from expecting technolgists to derive much
if anything from the Marketer/ Salesman / Manager promoted phrase "Cloud
Computing", which I've found so far carries nothing new, for those
who've already been working in distributed Unix environments.
