I'm talking about the mindset customers have developed.

And there's no agreed standard for the definition of cloud. Rackspace claims their services is cloud based. I don't agree to it. But there are people who believe Rackspace services are cloud based. So, just about anyone can claim their hosting service is cloud based. There's no way you can prove whether a service is cloud based or not. Cloud is a buzzword effectively used by marketing folks.

There are various tools out there like DocBook, ReST, mark down, wikis, etc. Which tool do you recommend?"

+ - Amazon EC2/S3 vs. traditional Webhosting? 3

Maybe there's a study on it or someone has experience of running a site from Amazon. I looked at the Amazon pricing but it turns out to be a structure: I/O connections, bandwidth, S3, EC2... even if you don't use S3 but your Firefox S3 app. pings to it, you get billed. Too many variables for a straightforward comparison. Any help would be much appreciated, thanks."

How can you work when the system's so crowded?
