This skinny handsome guy can laugh all the way down in his video, but I say you what: 

The content is more than serious, and if Microsoft wants to make its future Flightsim Users completely dependent over Cloud Computing, than the bosses of MS trust can grease their hair with this new MSFS.

It makes we wanna puke  :kusut:

Do you watch Netflix?  Hulu?  Amazon Video?  Youtube?  Listen to Spotify?

I hate to break it to you, but if your answer to any of those is "yes", you are already dependent on cloud computing.  All of those providers use "the cloud" as their backbone, and they are far from alone.  It's how a huge chunk of modern tech works:  computing is cheap, bandwidth is plentiful, but managing huge data centers is expensive.  A few big companies do that, and everything else is in "the cloud".

You may have issues with a subscription model, or a game that needs a constant internet connection, that's fair.  Address those.  But outrage for the sake of outrage at being "dependent on Cloud Computing" is reactionary and Luddite.  Because if you're a user of modern technology, you already are.

This.

I was fortunate enough to have a permanent internet connection in my apartment starting in 2000, and by 2004 or so constant connectivity became as expected as electricity. I imagine there were a few folks back in the day complaining about our increased demand on electricity and what we'd do if that ever went out.

Ubiquitous connectivity is a really great thing, for users as well as developers.

Cheers!

Everything is going to the cloud and eventually I will become a Luddite.

Here's the reality.

We either go to the cloud or we never move forward. You simply can't put 2,000TB on your home PC anymore than you can put Netflix's entire library on your shelf.

I hate to say this but LM may go down the same route in the future, that may not be a bad thing with cloud you can have the integrity of your files and folders checked and repaired with a simple click of the mouse.

I do not think that things are as many seem to think they are. LOL  Using 2 petabytes of raw satellite data to develop scenery does not instantly equate to you will have to have 2 petabytes of scenery.  What little discussion regarding the use of Azure AI (note the AI part) there is (from Microsoft) indicates they used Azure AI to fill in blank areas and improve questionable areas of satellite coverage when developing the sim's scenery.  It does not indicate the sim has a 2 petabyte scenery database.

....NO, I'm not watching any of them at my home, seriously. 

The only thing I'm doing is to download certain youtube videos I like via IDM (which works like a breeze) outside of my home via a "special computer", and most of the time during surfing at home I'm using TOR browser.

And this setting works very well to me :happy:

Just imagine you goto the store buy a 4K UHD movie on Blu-ray for full price, get home open the disk and get a code to only watch it on MySpace after you watch a mandatory 5 minutes of commercials.

They said the same think with Kobo, Kindle and Nook that it was the evolution of book reading but bookstores are still there.

I understand the scenery implications and data it takes but I think that MS is going to take full advantage of this and setting us up for some sort of pay-to-play subscription. If you look at hush-software for example that exactly what they do, stream world terrain for fsx/p3d for a sub.

It meas to play/stream a 4K game you will need something like 100 Mbit/s non stop on a high end system with money to burn, it's wishful thinking just not realistic for 90% of us.

Ugh this is patently false. For one I can stream around 3D Paris or London just fine on my iPhone, far from a “high end” system. You have been able to do this for years and I can also force stream a 4K video on YouTube just fine. No log. No stutter. What’s my iPhone processor/GPU equivalent to a desktop?

Streaming as part of gaming is coming. It’s just a matter of time. If you don’t understand something being afraid of what you’ll “lose” and then pushing false or misleading facts about it seems silly.
