I like the idea of a web-only OS, since almost everything I need and use on a computer on a daily basis is accessible through the web, but it’s still missing one of the most critical things, and it’s the same thing that keeps me from going iPhone-only on vacations and long weekend trips — a decent way to edit code. Maybe something like Bespin is the answer — I’ve never tried it out, but would have expected to hear more about it if it was really worth using. Until someone comes up with some kind of web or iPhone-based emacs-like code editor, preferably one that syncs through DAV or some kind of VCS to other computers, I think I’m stuck with traditional laptops and OSes. A shame, because although the keyboard on the iPhone would be worthless for long coding sessions, it’d be great for small corrections and simple edits.
