    “I would like to see Web applications achieve function and quality parity with desktop apps”

    Isn't that what SilverLight is all about?  Though having an ultra thin OS, ditches legacy app support and just runs web apps is probably the future.  Where would the desktop be located...I'd argue that Windows Live and/or Live Mesh are potential options.  But lets not get to carried away because this is just research...for now.
