Editorial A few years ago I wrote on OSNews several articles (1,2) about workstations. After three years I had to stop, because there were no workstations left on the market, they became legacy and were not sold any more. Now with the rise of mobile devices with touchscreen and wireless network connectivity virtually everywhere, the question becomes valid, what will happen with the desktop computers, are they still needed, or will they follow the workstations on their way to computer museums?

Where did workstations go exactly?

I'm pretty sure people all over the world continue to use high end computers at work to do coding, CAD, etc. Maybe vendors stopped calling these computers "workstations", but I don't think they went anywhere.

I have a laptop and use it when i'm away from the house, but if I have the option I use my desktop. I like my Das Keyboard, MX revolution, and 23" monitor thank you very much. You'll pry my desktop from my cold, dead hands.
