I should add that you're making a distinction between a "cloud" and
"private cloud" - which, given the context of the OP is completely
irrelevant. A long as you can access and go-about-your-daily business
using a browser (as opposed to using a locally installed software), a
mobile device such as a tablet (with or w/o a keyboard) is more than
enough.

BTW, I do agree that Fedora should *not* follow Ubuntu's footsteps and
go smart-phone happy.
Even though desktop computers (that already have been taken to the
cleaners by laptops, which in-turn, are about to being take to the
cleaners, by tablets, etc) are on verge of becoming a small minority,
we're still talking about millions of computers; plus given
Microsoft's and Ubuntu's move toward idiot-proof OS', Fedora actually
has a chance to instead it's user base.
