Yesterday, we told you how OnLive is breaking away from its gaming roots to deliver a Windows 7 thin client from the cloud. Today, we've got video of Windows 7 on an iPad, streaming a desktop complete with Word, Excel, PowerPoint and mulititouch apps, far smoother than your average remote desktop solution. See it action below, and / or try it for yourself free on iPad when the app launches this Thursday!

Update: OnLive says the app is actually coming Friday, due to an additional deployment of servers to handle the estimated load.
