I want to be in charge of my desktop, thank you very much,
Damn yes... me too

and I can paint some pretty scary scenarios of why you should as well.

Just as an example: Suppose the United States government decides you can’t use software from a U.S.-based cloud. If you had Windows on a desktop, you just keep going, but if it’s a cloud service, you’re dead in the water.
Exactly. (not only U.S., your local government can cut the connection too).

Or security... Theoretically, that should be more secure than normal PCs, but... when (and don't if) a security bug pops up, the damage will be much bigger because all "WVDs" are in the "same place"

Or economic... You buy one licence once, or you pay a periodical quote that can be changed / raised at any time without leaving you any chance but to pay more because you don't want to loose your "PC"

Elephant | [mastadon] ing NO, thanks

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
