Free Software "cloud computing"

Hi Lucile,

I think "open source cloud computing" is used, at least in most of the
cases, as a short way to say "open source software for building private
and public clouds". OpenStack ( is, maybe, the
main example of that.
Do you think there is any other meaning for that expression?

Best regards
