It isn't as much as not having servers in existence. The hardware itself will likely stay, as it will perhaps power up systems more powerful than a single standalone server. My question (perhaps a little more imaginative) is if industry folks here think that people will at some point stop shopping for a server in the form that it is sold today (be it VPS or dedicated) and instead shop for something else that will become a lot more common (cloud?) that will become the new standard.

Do you see that happen? If so, what is the time bracket do you imagine such a shift to take place in consumer minds?
