You do what works don't you
For most people, they don't have a server, or stuff at home they need to connect to, and having a serverless environment for a lot of folks, provided they have the connectivity, a Chromebook is a great tool though.
I'll be honest, years of working in IT has sort of made me incredibly skeptical about cloud computing and subscription to what you need, but the industry is slowly (and I'm glad of this) moving to a user centric, identity based setup, and while I like to keep my own stuff on my own tin, I could go server-less tomorrow if I wanted to, as could most people.
