It's scary how obsolete that makes many things, like many Universal Communication devices, email, etc... I'm surprised they decided to let everyone install Wave servers.

I'm curious how well it distributes.

It won't distribute.

At least, not for a long time. People won't give up what they have. Little do people know that Google already has a built-in IM system to rival Pidgin. And it has videochat! Multiplatform. But nobody knows about it, they don't equate Google with that sort of thing.

I think many people will begin to use Wave once it's out, but we'll continue to use email, traditional IM, and forums. Whether people fully switch depends on whether Google and other developers make it useful enough.

The primary concern is that Wave is too complicated for most of the world who are just getting used to e-mail.

If Google can figure out a way of simplifying Wave, it's bound to be a success.

Wave would only be useful for people that have all these separate accounts, agencies, and applications, so I don't know if at least at launch point simplicity would be an issue.
