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 tried the desktop on the couch while watching TV, but the monitor kept falling off my knees. At school, they complained about me taking up too much space. I used a car battery to run it on the train, but people kept tripping over it.

But seriously, we are talking about your other computers. I have a quad-core desktop for gaming, but I use my laptops most. Everyone in the family has a laptop. The days of a single computer are gone.

In fact, even the laptop is often overkill. I use my Android phone to check my email all day long, keep up with Facebook, and listen to streaming music.

I think that is the point of the article.
