For those who don't understand cloud computing there is already applications designed for Windows Server which do exactly this and that software business is making a killing in the IT world right now. For example my company manages a doctor network which services 1000+ doctors and we host all their data at a datacenter. There are 45 blade servers linked together via Citrix metraframe server. All servers host all applications and if any one goes down they can simply be redirected to another server while repairs are made. Microsoft simply wants to eliminate these software vendors and get in the mix themselves. This cloud OS is entirely related to business services and not home use.

“Then they pop up and say ‘Hello, surprise! Give us your money or we will shut you down!' Screw them. Seriously, screw them. You can quote me on that.” -- Newegg Chief Legal Officer Lee Cheng referencing patent trolls
