1. Obviously, everything is becoming bigger, faster, pore powerful, more efficient, and ultimately cheaper, all at about the same time. 2. Probably not any time soon. For something to actually render all of the above obsolete, it would have to not only match what those things are already doing separately, but also improve on how and how fast they do them all together, which I don’t think we’ve quite reached that milestone yet. 3. I think it will, and as in the case example, even former mainframe pariahs who have had considerable experience with a grid are toting it’s obvious benefits compared to mainframes. As for security, I think it could be a great risk to someone who wasn’t careful. Historically, networks are much easier to crack into than mainframes, and that’s just counting the external safety concerns. A well-meaning employee who wasn’t aware of what they were doing or how to do it could cause some serious damage, unintentionally, if not securely kept out of certain areas of the network. 4. Again, not any time soon. As I said earlier, they just don’t have the capacity yet. PDAs
