Vis. 14 (and also part of 12), AJAX is getting beaten up pretty heavily right now. Between Javascript issues (Prototype Hijacking), the exponential complexity increase from AJAX applications (vast testing issues when you start having thousands of code paths to audit) and the fact that AJAX of necessity exposes a lot of business logic to attackers, there's a non-trivial chance of a huge net commerce disruption very soon. Bet that the black hats will move faster than the industry.

Even though they're not directly responsible, Microsoft will take some heat when Vista proves "vulnerable". It might not unseat them, but it could make MS less of a force in the OS market. (such as one exists long term, as Neal Stephenson noted in his essay "In the beginning was the command line")
