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?

Once notebooks came out with dual core cpus the desktop was in trouble.

My typical workload this month consists of 2-3 instances of Visual Studio, an instance of VirtualBox running Windows and a few open utilities and my Core 2 Duo notebook handles everything just fine.

Desktops won't go away but they reached their peak years ago.
