Default cloud OS?

After around 25 years of enjoying peer-peer desktop computing with self
administration I look back to client/server models and want something
for most of what I do without my own machine/network admin.

How about a terminal/thin-client running a cloud distributed java
byte-code OS with availability of byte-code apps including development?
The only thing besides that I would want is hardware input/output like:
CD/DVD, USB stick, memory card, etc. might give a rise to the hardware
consumable market ...

With the right model I think OS or network development is even possible

left out multimedia input/output ... might require hardware buffering
other than memory, might mean the whole idea doesn't work

Rather vague. Most of what you do? Which is what?
Java? Why? You're describing a services kiosk with
limited functionality and limited privacy. Sandboxing
makes the former inevitable. Cloud makes the latter
inevitable. Is most of what you do shopping? If not
then why put it on someone else's computer and why
limit the functionality by using wrapper systems like
Java?

On the other hand, if shopping and services via
kiosk is what you want then you need only wait.
Win10 will probably get closer with every update.
Or you could switch to an iPad and use apps.

Inferno is what you want.

I am basically ready to off-load admin in most situations

java byte-code looked like a way to standardize access/delivery

Sounds awful. However, I reject "the cloud" and prefer to maintain local
control of my resources and data.

Google beat you to it with ChromeOS.

Microsoft would like Windows to be a cloud OS, just so MSFT can charge
you rent on your software.

It`s called "Chrome OS" or "Cloudready".

What's wrong with that? We are already used to a rental system on
our cars (in the UK called Personal Contract Purchase or PCP). It's
the way things are going.
