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?

Bullshit, even my state-of-the-art 13" CULV from ASUS feels slow when compiling. More importantly: it is a real pain to type your code on a laptop all days long.

If I could make room for a desktop computer, I would switch right away. The small screen and keyboard of laptops/netbooks will lead to back and neck injuries after just 1-2 years of heavy use!
