Google Web Services Should be Free?

Dave Winer offers a compelling reason on why Google would offer it’s Web Services (AWS competitor) for free. (That is if they actually release one like I predicted for this year.)

The basic premise is that if GWS were free, Google could reap the benefits of having a whole heap of developers tied into their platform. After which acquiring a company would be much less cheaper if they’re already tied into the Google cloud. I can see Google making a move like this for the normal user but they would eventually have to charge for larger customers. After all they already provide 6.5 gb of storage space for gmail users but providing unlimited GWS usage is a hit not even the mighty Google can take.
