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?

I felt that way for many years but the xbox changed my mind.

" and already the PC offers far greater FPS and graphics than the PS3 is capable of. "

The average user does not care about FPS

"I can't believe you're suggesting playing fallout3 on a console"

I love Fallout on my 360

"That, and it's impossible to play an FPS without a keyboard and mouse.
Gamepads are horrible. "

have you played any of the Halo games? They NAIL IT I do not EVER want to go back to keyboard and mouse.

"Meanwhile, if consoles added mind control/keyboard+mouse support with Linux's mix of desktop applications (which would probably cause windows/osx progs to be ported to the console), w"

No I would NEVER buy that. I want a game console, and maybe I want it to play my music and movies but no more. People get consoles because they are simple. No AV updates, no DirectX updates (that they no of ;) No changing video cards. You know when you get a game it will work the same in your 360 as it does in your friends 360. Its about convince and consistency. Just like McDonald's they may not make the best hamburger but you always know what you are getting.

Also Xbox Live is AMAZING!
