People will cut off automated vehicles in a LEGAL way, slowing down the automated vehicle, as Necron described. Sure, in instances where IT IS RECKLESS, there could be suspended licenses, etc; But the vast majority would be legal and the only detriment would be to the scheduling of the automated vehicle.
My bad experiences with thin clients are that sometimes an app that everyone is running on the server end crashes somehow, and there is no way to correct the situation except to restart the server the app runs on. Sometimes that could be done gracefully, other times, more frequently, everyone would need to exit their remote sessions, wait until further instructions, then log in again. If there are lots of folks logged in, and they all have to exit because one app on the back end crashed that can cause serious consternation.

As has been noted here, and is very obvious to those with any modicum of insight, the brand and trust value in FF has been greatly tarnished:
Will the general public be more reticent to use FF?
Will computer techs be less likely to reccommend FF to users?
Will enterprises be less likely to use FF?
I think the answer is yes on all counts.
Gamma International(AKA major cunts) picked the obvious choice of "trusted" and "independent" browsers to smear. And they have done a great job. Also, they smeared the browser that has the smallest legal coffers, because it had to be obvious to the major kunts that Mozilla would get wind of this and then litigate. We could hope that Mozilla can, as has been noted earlier, "sue the living daylights" out of major kunts.
How far will they get?
How will Mozilla reclaim their "street cred" as the independent and trusted browser?
Then we need to think about who this action helps, indirectly... Well, we all know the answer that.
Now, I wouldn't go so far as to suggest that either of the other major browsers had anything to do with this smear, but, it does cause one to pause and perhaps reflect on the long term implications of this smear against FF.
We can only pray that Mozilla is able to see that justice is done against this despicable band of hoodlums and scumbags.
Tablet equals fancy electronic clipboard... if you don't havea sue for a clipboard, you have little use for a tablet.
Yes, we know, phones and tablets are consumption devices.
PC's are "work"/creation devices.
In the enterprise Apple or Linux or whoever is gonna have a HELLUVA time displacing Windows, Active Directory, Office, etc; and all the software that is written to run in that environment.
For example, how many bioanalytical chemistry/drug testing labs are running LIMS or Lab Informatics software on mac's or google chrome devices? What about companies that process credit card transactions? What about inventory control software for food processing? Apple? Linux?
Just because all these media consumption devices are "the new kid in town" and basking in their self-referential glow doesn't mean they are going to displace the framework that is in place that businesses run on.
Agreed, MS blew it in the consumer space, but good luck dislodging them from the Enterprise.
