In this talk, we will explore the use of cloud VMs as a personal computer and how cloud VMs can provide improved performance and accessibility, making them an ideal choice for remote work and collaborations.

The talk will also highlight how cloud VMs can be particularly beneficial for new contributors looking to get started with open-source development. With a cloud VM, they can easily set up and configure their development environment without worrying about hardware limitations or compatibility issues.

Lastly, we will discuss how using a GUI like GNOME on a cloud VM can help users access GUI applications and make their work more efficient. By leveraging GNOME's built-in tools, users can seamlessly switch between local and remote workspaces, making cloud-based development a seamless experience.

Overall, this talk will showcase the advantages of using cloud VMs with GNOME and how they can enhance the user experience and developer onboarding.
