However, the time is on our side. More and more software needs not be installed at all. How many of your non-tech friends install local email client instead of reading gmail in a browser?
That's a funny way of defining "on our side." It's like saying, "time is on this multiple sclerosis sufferer's side, because he also has cancer and will be dead before the MS gets really bad."
You're pointing out that technology is swinging back toward centrally maintained computers with simple terminals, and there are no complexities of installing new applications on a simple terminal. You take gmail as Google gives it to you, period.
