Microsoft Demo is First Shot in Fight to Own the Cloud

Does this demo make my app look monopolistic?

By  

Considering the unbelievably optimistic projections of how fast SAAS and Cloud Computing are growing ( or are projected to grow ), it's hard to believe app vendors need much convincing to adapt some version of their apps so people can get them by subscription rather than the usual way.

So it's surprising to see Microsoft posting an elaborate come-on and demo aimed at app vendors to convince them to experiment with a "fun" little demo designed to show how their apps would look online as SAAS editions, not to mention a more head-on come-on to Salesforce.com users .

Until you realize SAAS and Cloud are already past being a novelty , and become a growing market for which to compete whether you're selling apps, platforms or things you can label "cloud " but don't describe very clearly otherwise.
