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?

PC versus console war

This sounds like the 2010s version of the '90s "PC versus console" war, doesn't it?

We all know how that war ended: a lot of people buy consoles, but the PC gaming market is still huge. A lot of people actually owns both a console AND a gaming PC. Or even more than one of both categories: I own a PS3, a gaming PC/workstation/server, and my notebook is a decent gaming machine as well.

This will happen again: we will end up with a lot of consumer devices, undoubtly, but this will not kill the PC.
