Is this the future of computing?

PC-over-IP technology is designed specifically to deliver a user’s desktop from a centralized host PC across standard IP networks. In other words, working on a desktop PC that’s not actually on your desk.

One company promoting this type of technology is Teradici

A PC-over-IP system includes a centralized TERA Host and a desktop TERA Portal connected by a wired or wireless enterprise IP network. Desktop PCs and workstations that incorporate a TERA Host are centralized in a secure location while TERA Portals connect displays and peripherals at the user’s desktop.
