Thanks, Hazan, for the good link.
But all this discussion is still about various pieces of client software
you run on a local machine no matter where you get it or how you pay for it.
I am talking about running the software remotely (in the cloud), not on
local machines, with only data (and commands) passed back and forth.
>From what I have read so far, Adobe is not talking about that, despite the
"cloud" in their name for the new iteration of their suite.
Autodesk has been playing with this concept with very interesting results.
Their 123D Catch is amazing.
And here is the "octocopter" capturing the images to make a 3D 123D catch
of their HQ.
You can do this with your cell phone, uploading the pix to 123D catch where
all the computational heavy lifting is done in the cloud.
I am looking forward to the day when we can do this all complex tasks, and
Open Source seems like the best way to go forward.
